Resources to Prepare for Recovery
Prepare Your Business
This pandemic has had a significant impact on all businesses. The Arlington Chamber is here to provide you with resources to help you successfully prepare for resuming operations in this new climate. As we begin to look ahead to reopening businesses, preparing now can set your business up for success.

The U.S. Chamber of Commerce created a “ Playbook for Your Small Business”, with helpful information for all businesses:
1.      Gather Information and Best Practices
2.      Prioritize Safety
3.      Make a Plan
4.      Communicate
5.      Execute
6.      Be Ready to Adapt to Any Obstacles
7.      Respond and Pivot Your Strategy Accordingly
Guidance for Best Practices
Consulting with other government and industry guidance and best practices can also help you as you make your business plan. 

Many more trade associations have resources, guidelines, and standards. Utilize your industry association for sector specific resources.
PPP Loan Forgiveness
The Small Business Administration and U.S. Treasury have released the guidelines and application for loan forgiveness under the Paycheck Protection Program, the forgivable loan program for small businesses. The U.S. Chamber has created a helpful Guide to PPP Loan Forgiveness, which will walk you through the form, and detail other requirements.
