As of today, the City of Coral Springs is activating the Business Hotline - (954) 344-5772. Any questions, concerns or requests that a business has can be answered on that helpline. Additionally, we were informed that the City will be working on procuring raw materials and services that will be needed. As a result of the state of emergency declared in the City of Coral Springs, procurement procedures are going to be relaxed and the city will have more opportunity to purchase from local vendors. The Chamber will be forwarding this out as we get more updates throughout the next few weeks.

The Chamber will be in communication with federal, state and local organizations that are working on business assistance. We will keep you informed on a day to day basis as the information comes out.

The U.S. Census Bureau continues to carefully monitor the Coronavirus and is following the guidance of federal, state and local health authorities, with adjustment of some operations with two key principles in mind: protecting our health & safety. View Official Statement.
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.
