MA Small Biz! We need your voice as part of the
MassInc Small Business Reopening Survey
Tell us how COVID19 has impacted your business and what you need for reopening & recovery. Your input will inform policy and economic recovery programs. 

Last chance to participate, survey closes 7/10!

The Lawrence Partnership and Community Development Corporations across Massachusetts have partnered with MassINC Polling Group to conduct a statewide survey about how the coronavirus has impacted small businesses in Massachusetts. We’re asking for your input to ensure that economic recovery programs and policies are informed by your current needs.

This survey is for small businesses with 500 employees or less. It’s available in English, Spanish, Portuguese, Haitian Creole and Mandarin. It should take less than 10 minutes of your time. Your answers will be analyzed together with other responses and will never be used to identify you personally. This survey will be open for a short period of time. Please respond as soon as possible.

Thank you very much for participating in this important initiative. Please share this survey with other Massachusetts business owners to ensure wide representation.

The CDP will share the results in a future Inside Scoop edition.

The Department of Treasury websi t e provides a listing of loan totals by state. To date, 1527 businesses across the Lower and Outer Cape have received $54,012,378.62 in PPP loans and have retained 7518 jobs in our community.

We believe that there are many other businesses in our region that could benefit from these forgivable loans. If you have received a loan, we would like to share your story to help other businesses that have not yet applied. Please email Jason at the CDP to share your story for future advertising and promotion to show other businesses what types of businesses have participated.

The CDP has helped over 50 Lower and Outer Cape business owners review opportunities for financial assistance during the pandemic. There are still PPP funds available. The application deadline has been extended to August 8th. Please contact Pam if you would like to discuss the options available to your business.
