COVID-19 Business Impact: Survey Responses Needed

SBA

 

The Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) is working to secure access to helpful resources for small businesses throughout the State of Illinois. As you may have read from SBA’s previous announcement (https://www.sba.gov/page/guidance-businesses-employers-plan-respond-coro...), the U.S. Small Business Administration will work directly with state Governors to provide targeted, low-interest loans to small businesses and non-profits that have been severely impacted by COVID-19.

As part of this process, DCEO needs to collect information from small businesses that are negatively impacted. This information will assist them in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from the SBA.
