Governor DeSantis Activates Emergency Business Damage Assessment Survey for Coronavirus (COVID-19)
Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan – Governor Ron DeSantis activated the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program to support small businesses impacted by COVID-19. The bridge loan program, will provide short-term, interest-free loans to small businesses that experienced economic injury from COVID-19. The application period opens, March 17, 2020 and runs through May 8, 2020. The short-term, interest-free loans will help bridge the gap between the time the economic impact occurred and when a business secures other financial resources, including payment of insurance claims or longer-term Small Business Administration (SBA) loans. Up to $50 million has been allocated for the program. Small business owners with two to 100 employees located in Florida affected by COVID-19 can apply for short-term loans up to $50,000. To be eligible, a business must have been established prior to March 9, 2020 and demonstrate economic impacts as a result of COVID-19. For more information on the program, visit www.floridadisasterloan.org.
Business Damage Assessment Survey - The State of Florida has also activated the Business Damage Assessment Survey to assess the impact of COVID-19 on Florida’s local business operations so actions to implement appropriate relief programs can begin. Such as the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program for businesses impacted by COVID-19. With proper reporting through the Business Damage Assessment Survey, Florida can activate this vital program providing up to $2 million to help eligible small businesses, small agricultural cooperatives, and most private nonprofit organizations meet financial obligations and operating expenses that could have been met should the pandemic not have occurred. In order to make the loan program available, states must make a request based on the need for a disaster declaration.
