Emporia Main Street

BUSINESSES- responding to this national survey may help form future support for small business programs. Take a moment to take the survey and make your voice heard!Help Us Help Small Businesses! We are seeking information from small business owners about the challenges they’re facing as a result of the COVID-19 public health emergency. Specifically, we need to better understand the ability of businesses to withstand what may be a several months of suppressed revenue and what kinds of support programs will have the most impact. Please encourage your small businesses to respond to this survey: bit.ly/2Uqo0jq. This data will make us stronger advocates to Congress, to state legislators, and to our local elected officials in explaining the kind of resources needed by Main Street businesses to weather the storm.

We’re asking for responses by 5:00pm PT next Friday, April 3rd. It should take each small business owner about five minutes to go through the questions.
