Everyone has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic in one way or another. While businesses of all sizes are dealing with their fair share of challenges, small businesses have been among those hit the hardest by the pandemic. The smaller the business, the harder the hit, data from an SMB Group survey shows, as smaller companies typically lack cash flow and capital to provide more of a cushion in these economically unstable and uncertain times.
We have collected a few resources about unemployment benefits and federal government stimulus information for small businesses that we’d like to share in hopes that they will be helpful to you or someone you know.
Please note that SANS has no control of nor affiliation with the creators of these resources, and the information is subject to change; we are supplying them here in an effort to be of service to our community.
If you have found other resources valuable for small businesses, please share them with us on our Twitter so we can add them to this list and support our community together.
