Welcome to the Tampa Chapter of SCORE.

We're local volunteers eager to provide free help to small businesses in Hillsborough County.

PPP Updates

On Tuesday, January 19, 2021 the Paycheck Protection Program portal opened to all participating PPP lenders to submit First and Second Draw loan applications to SBA.

Signed into law in late 2020 the new Economic Aid act extended the EIDL (Economic Injury Disaster Loan) deadline to December 31, 2021 and set aside additional budget for PPP loans to help alleviate the financial burden on small businesses as the result of the coronavirus pandemic.

SCORE's mentors, comprised of active and retired business men and women, provide clients with free and confidential business counseling. Counseling can be conducted at the client's place of business, at our chapter headquarters, by telephone or via email.

Request for a Mentor

SCORE mentors and representatives from the local business community conduct a variety of regularly scheduled, low-cost educational workshops that provide valuable information and techniques necessary for establishing and managing a successful business.
