SBA Tools to Help You Get Through COVID-19

Raymond Graves from the SBA Cleveland District Office will be presenting information on the second round of funding for the popular Paycheck Protection program which sunset last August but was renewed by the Economic Aid Act signed into law in late December.

Businesses who participated in the last round may apply to be involved again, but the qualifications and parameters of the program are not quite the same as what they were.

First time applicants may also apply. We’ll be going over these subjects and also touching on additional resources enabled by the EAA including debt payment relief for SBA borrowers.

This Webinar Will Cover:

  • Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) (First Draw and Second Draw)
  • Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL)
  • Enhanced SBA Guarantee
  • SBA Debt Relief

NASA’s Watts on the Moon Challenge: Informational Webinar

Support NASA’s efforts to explore the solar system. This Challenge seeks solutions to distribute, store and manage power in space.

Thursday, January 21, 2021
1:00 PM EST


Challenge Background and Objectives

As NASA works to extend human exploration of the solar system, unprecedented capacity for electrical and thermal energy distribution, management, and storage will be needed to support sustained human presence and the beginning of industrial activity.

Solar energy is abundant on the lunar surface but extended night hours (350 consecutive hours) and extreme environmental temperature change from daylight to nighttime operation creates complexity for solar power use. Analogous issues arise on Earth, where demand for additional renewable energy generation, including solar, is rising, but additional power management, distribution, and energy storage solutions are needed to address intermittency and resiliency, among other issues.

In this Challenge, Teams will propose solutions for energy distribution, management, and/or storage that address NASA technology gaps and can progress toward flight readiness and future operation on the lunar surface. Such solutions may also have important synergies with terrestrial energy needs, and this Challenge is expected to help advance similar technologies for terrestrial application and commercialization.

In general, NASA is seeking to work with innovators across disciplines to find solutions that address a variety of needs on the lunar surface and will be exploring options to transport potential solutions to the Moon for testing, demonstration, and operation in the coming years.

This is a US competition only. Please review the Team Agreement for complete eligibility requirements.
