Penn State SBDC Response to COVID-19: As the response to the global Coronavirus continues to unfold, the Penn State SBDC is taking precautions to help protect the health and well-being of our clients, employees, and local community. To help mitigate the potential impacts of the COVID-19, we have decided to suspend all in-person consulting appointments and workshops through April 3rd at the earliest.

As we continue to monitor developments, the Penn State SBDC recognizes that some of our clientand their small businesses may be negatively affected by the impacts of this global outbreak. To that end, we stand ready to work with clients as they navigate potential financial hardships. If you currently have any specific concerns or questionsreach out to your current consultant or complete our online consulting request form to schedule a time to meet. 

While we are unable to determine the ultimate outcomes and impacts of COVID-19we are hopeful that the various technologies we have available will allow us to continue to serve you and your small business during this time. We will continue to update you of any decisions that may impact future Penn State SBDC service offerings.
