Driving economic development and business success in Johnson County and the southside of Indianapolis.
Financial and Business Support
Indiana businesses are now eligible to apply for Small Business Administration (SBA) federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).  Details and applications available online. 
Additional financial, HR, health, and planning resources are available at  www.aspirejohnsoncounty.com/covid19 . We also encourage business owners to visit  www.Response.IndyChamber.com  where business coaches are standing by to respond to your direct, personal business questions via the “Ask” link –  membership not required to use this free service.
Local Employment Opportunities
Some local companies are HIRING during this time. 

If you are forced to lay off employees, or know someone who needs a job, please refer them to the Aspire Job Board at  www.aspirejohnsoncounty.com/covid19 .

If your company has available jobs, please contact Aspire so we may add them.
Comprehensive Resource for Local Health and Human Services
Has the health crisis placed undue burden on your employees’ health, finances, or basic needs? United Way of Johnson County (UWJC) has compiled a comprehensive list of Johnson County resources for residents at  www.uwjc.org/covid-19 . The list includes resources for food, family support, local utilities, transportation, senior services, employment, and more. 

Please share this resource with your employees in need. If you have questions, call UWJC at 317.736.7840.
