Governor DeSantis announced the activation of the Business Damage Assessment survey. We encourage you to take this survey because it could provide additional funding for Florida businesses by assessing the impact of COVID-19 on Florida's local business operations.
To give businesses a better chance at survival post-disaster, the U.S. Chamber Foundation offers a free toolkit called Resilience in a Box, in partnership with The UPS Foundation. This collection of resources educates business leaders on disaster preparedness and helps put them on a path to resilience.
