Commerce Website Now Includes COVID-19 Business Resources 

As North Carolina's lead economic, workforce and community development organization, Commerce is working to help our partners navigate the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Our website now includes a "Business Resource Guide" that serves as a clearinghouse for COVID-related information for business owners, business leaders and managers, and employers of any type in North Carolina.

Economic developers, community leaders and many other stakeholders will also find value in the resources featured in the guide. The guide, assembled by Commerce leaders, includes guidance and links for financing programs, unemployment insurance, essential business designation, supply-chain opportunities and more.

Commerce’s Business Resource Guide went live at  earlier this week. It will be edited and updated regularly in the days and weeks ahead.

Help us improve the guide by offering your feedback by  sending an email to us using this link , or submitting your feedback using the “How can we make this page better for you?” link, which you'll find at the bottom of every page on the Commerce website.
