Florida Governor Ron DeSantis has activated a Business Damage Assessment survey to assess the impact of Coronavirus (COVID-19) on local businesses. The survey will be used to determine appropriate relief programs.
The survey can be taken online at https://floridadisaster.biz/.
According to the announcement, results will be shared with state agencies and local partners. “Surveys submitted by small businesses can be used to access the Small Business Administration’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan, made available for COVID-19 through the Coronavirus Preparedness and Response Supplemental Appropriations Act.”
“We need feedback from all Florida businesses to provide comprehensive information about the impacts of COVID-19 to our partners at the federal level,” Florida Department of Economic Opportunity Executive Director Ken Lawson stated in the release.
If you need assistance with the survey or have questions, contact Emergency Support Function 18 at ESF18@em.myflorida.com.
