Here is a list of resources to guide your response to COVID-19 and aid in the recovery process.
- Your colleagues across the state are beginning to take advantage of small business grants and loans available through state and federal relief programs, and you should, too. These economic relief funds come at little to no cost, are easy to apply for, and can keep your practice afloat until community isolation and safety restriction measures are lifted.
