Unlocking inclusivity: How ERAF can transform your business

Join us for an engaging and inspiring webinar, brought to you by the Minnesota Department of Employment and Economic Development (DEED), where we'll explore the power of workplace inclusivity.

Discover how your business can benefit from the Employer Reasonable Accommodation Fund (ERAF), a remarkable initiative that supports small to mid-sized businesses by reimbursing up to $30,000 for expenses related to providing reasonable accommodations for job applicants and employees with disabilities.

During this session, you'll also gain valuable insights into leveraging SBA loans to finance these accommodations upfront. We'll explore the details of the 7(a) Small Loan and microloan programs, providing you with practical solutions to embrace inclusivity while enhancing your business operations.

This opportunity not only simplifies the process of making your workplace accessible but also connects fantastic businesses with outstanding talent. Don't miss out on learning how your business can thrive through inclusivity and strategic support.
