LED Growth Network:  We received the attached Small Business Owners Guide from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) last night to help small business owners leverage federal resources made available by the CARES Act.  Because things are so fluid, I am documenting this information as accurate as of March 31, 2020.  There is a lot of information being disseminated, so please be mindful that your sources are verified and credible.  If you receive something that looks to good to be true or posts that appear to traffic in fear, it probably is not reliable.  Related to cyber security threats, the attached document on establishing a telework security policy was provided by the Governor's Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness (via ESF-17 Team) which may provide helpful guidance.
