COVID-19 Business Resources

Updated 7/8/2020 

The City is acutely aware of the impacts to local businesses and non-profits from COVID-19. They have established an internal COVID-19 business response team, and, in collaboration with partners around the region and at the federal level we are exploring every avenue possible to bring support to our businesses. 

Please reach out if you have any questions about resources, or if the City can in any way be of assistance.
