A Message from the President

First, I wanted to thank you for your continued support of the Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce. We understand first-hand the challenges that the entire business community is facing right now. Our team has been working non-stop to connect with our members and provide them, and the entire community, with the most up-to-date resources and information to help navigate and ultimately survive this crisis. 

I am sure you have been bombarded with information from all directions. To help you through the clutter, I have included links to some of the more important websites that will help you, your business, and our community through the current crisis. Be sure to check out the U.S. Chamber’s  Coronavirus Emergency Loans Small Business Guide and Checklist - this will provide some of the answers to questions you may have regarding the The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act.

I also wanted to let you know that we know that many of our members are being greatly impacted at this time. Please know we are here for you. If you need to go on a monthly payment plan, delay payment or need to discuss other alternatives, please let us know. We are here to help and support you in every way possible. We will not be dropping you for nonpayment at this time.

We are in this together. 

Sincerely,

Scott Tate
President & CEO

U.S. Chamber of Commerce

This is the first of a number of resources the U.S. Chamber is developing to help local chambers to connect our members with the resources recently approved by Congress to respond to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic.

As many of you are aware, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the “Paycheck Protection Program,” the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses who maintain their payroll during this emergency. Importantly, these loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payrolls afterward.
