The Agency of Commerce and Community Development is working to identify businesses that meet the Small Business Administration’s threshold for SBA disaster loan assistance. Businesses are asked to complete an assessment form (available on the ACCD website at https://accd.vermont.gov/content/sba-worksheet) and return it to firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible to help us advocate for eligibility. Our goal is to gain information in each of the 14 counties across the state. We are looking for data on impacts in the following areas:
· Economic Injury
· Supply Chain
· Workforce (Including that caused by lack of childcare)
· Business Travel
· Visitor Travel and Tourism Activities
· Remote Work Capabilities
The Agency has also established a hotline so that businesses may call to report impacts and be directed to resources: (802) 461-5143. The hotline will be staffed Monday through Friday, 7:45 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
