The New Jersey Citizen Action (NJCAEF) Education Fund's Main Street Alliance project team will brief the media on its Store-to-Store Outreach visits to small businesses affected by Hurricane Sandy from 10:30 to 11 a.m. Feb. 13 at King's Village Chinese Restaurant, 1639 Lincoln Highway, Edison.

The group has been conducting a canvass since Feb. 5 to inform small businesses about various low-interest loan programs and resources available to recowver from losses after Hurricane Sandy.

A local small business owner will describe his experience with the recovery, and representatives of several loan programs will discuss the differences and advantages of each program.

Outreach staff will sum up their observations so far and discuss local business progress recovering from storm loss and damage.

State and local officials have been invited to join outreach staff as they visit businesses during the outreach.

Members of the media are invited to shadow the canvass.

Speakers will include:
