TCRPC Launches COVID-19 Business Economic Impact Survey
In an effort to gain an accurate assessment of the COVID-19 pandemic's impact on businesses in the Treasure Coast Region of Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, and Palm Beach counties, the Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC) has created a brief survey. The survey seeks to further understand operational changes businesses have implemented since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic and evaluate the impact private and public funding have had on businesses' ability to stay afloat. Business owners, nonprofits, and independent workers are encouraged to participate. The survey should take no longer than 10 minutes to take and can be accessed at: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/TCRPC-COVID19. TCRPC will use the survey results to identify economic resilience solutions and potential resources for businesses. All information will be reported in general terms and individual business information will remain confidential.
Please feel free to share the email or link above with your contacts, partners, and social media platforms.
