Invalid Bucks

Recently an Estherville retailer received out of date and invalid Northstar Bucks and Estherville Bucks. The pictures below are of formerly used Estherville and Northstar Bucks. These Bucks have been discontinued for more than 10 years and should not be accepted as payment. Current Estherville Bucks are a printed check and will be dated.

U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator Jovita Carranza announced today that agricultural businesses are now eligible for SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and EIDL Advance programs. SBA’s EIDL portal will reopen today as a result of funding authorized by Congress through the Paycheck Protection Program and Healthcare Enhancement Act. The legislation, signed into law by the President one week ago, provided additional funding for farmers and ranchers and certain other agricultural businesses affected by the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

See the attached press release for additional information.
