KSBDC is open and operating during the government shut down. We hope to limit the impact to our clients as much as possible. We are a partner program of the U. S. Small Business Administration and the degree of impact of the shutdown on our services is limited at this time. The length of the shutdown will determine the impact on our services. Since we do not know how long the shutdown will last, we are asking our staff to limit travel. KSBDC may not be able make circuit rides or go to client sites as much as we would like during the next couple of weeks. Hopefully, we will be back to our regular services and travel soon.
