Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program
 
On March 16, 2020 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. More information is at FloridaDisasterLoan.org
 
The Governor has requested the federal Small Business Administration (SBA) make the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program available for Florida's small businesses impacted by COVID-19. The Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO) stands ready to assist Florida's small businesses in accessing this funding when available.
 
The Business Damage Assessment survey has been activated to assess the impact of COVID-19 on Florida's local business operations. The survey, managed by DEO, will evaluate businesses affected by COVID-19 and the impacts the virus has had on the local economy so actions to implement appropriate relief programs can begin. The survey can be taken online at FloridaDisaster.biz.
