MA Small Biz COVID Response Coalition - Business Impact Survey
RequiredRequired Question(s)
As the virus continues to unfold and with the passing of the CARES Act and federal stimulus package solidified for small business recovery, we want to know if our businesses have access to the information they need; if these new resources are effectively getting to our business community; and if they are adequately meeting your needs.  
 
Please take 5 minutes to help us better understand the needs as you are experiencing them and ideas for coordinated solution making that could be helpful.  Also, please feel free to share this survey with others in your network as we gather as much information as possible.
