COVID-19 Resources for Businesses
U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation Initiative
Small businesses are the foundation of our communities and our economy. The impacts of the coronavirus pandemic have wrought unprecedented financial uncertainty. These businesses need resources and relief — and they need it now.
The Save Small Business Fund is part of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce’s Save Small Business Initiative—a nationwide effort to address small business owners’ immediate needs, mitigate closures and job losses, and mobilize the long-term support the small business community needs for recovery.
Grant applications will open on April 20, 2020. For information on eligibility, grant timeline, and more, visit savesmallbusiness.com.
West Michigan COVID-19 Business Coalition
The West Michigan COVID-19 Business Coalition is a collaborative effort by several West Michigan organizations working to provide resources, guidance, and business services to the employers and employees of our community that has been affected by the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) global pandemic.
