Regional Business Impact Survey - COVID 19
RequiredRequired Question(s)
GSI, West Plains Chamber, Greater Spokane Valley Chamber, Downtown Spokane Partnership and Visit Spokane are concerned about you and your business as we are all navigating uncharted waters with COVID-19.

Our goal is to understand and capture your business needs so we can be helpful in providing visibility into the vast array of resources being established as we speak at the local, state and federal levels. In addition, we strive to help coordinate informational resources between our government and our local business community, share information and provide assistance to help maneuver through these times.
