SWAMC invites Southwest Alaska businesses to join FORWARD!
FORWARD is a free online tool provided by SWAMC that connects Southwest Alaska businesses (including commercial fishers and non-profits) to a comprehensive list of federal, state, and local resources — grants, loans, deferrals, and more. It’s a one-stop shop for businesses affected by COVID-19.
Many business owners know about PPP, EIDL, and the AK CARES grant, but there is more out there! Log in to FORWARD and browse everything that is available to you.
Note: FORWARD is a new program, and new programs sometimes have bugs. Known bugs are being worked on, but please let us know if you run into any issues. For best results, fill out every field in your business profile. And for businesses signing up for first-time access to FORWARD, there is a one-business-day turnaround time to receive your username and password.
SWAMC team member Keri is available to help answer questions about how to use FORWARD to access COVID-19 relief funding. Contact Keri at 907-242-4077 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
