Introduction to Coronavirus Small Business Recovery

Coronavirus Small Business Recovery can be used to promote small businesses operating during the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic and understand the impact of the pandemic on small businesses in their community.

Small businesses are an integral part of the economy. Unfortunately, the pandemic has negatively impacted many businesses and some will not recover. Thankfully, there are programs that attempt to provide direct relief to struggling businesses but keeping up with new programs and regulations can be challenging. Helping small business recover requires a robust and transparent public education campaign that engages local businesses and provides the assistance they need (for example, grants, loans, employment advertisements, etc.). Coronavirus Small Business Recovery is typically implemented by economic development departments and other local government agencies that want to engage small businesses and help them recover from the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Coronavirus Small Business Recovery solution delivers a set of capabilities that help you engage local business owners, measure the impact of the pandemic on small businesses, report potential health order violations and their resolution, and promote small business recovery.
