In order for a Disaster Declaration for Pennsylvania to be declared, the Department of Community and Economic Development needs to understand the impact of businesses who are being affected by the Coronavirus to have access to U.S. Small Business Administration low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19).
In order for the state to receive this designation we need to get surveys completed from businesses to demonstrate that businesses in PA have been impacted.
The survey is attached and businesses can use the best estimates to complete this form. This is not a loan application; no loan applications can be accepted until Pennsylvania is awarded this Disaster Declaration.
If you are being impacted please complete the survey and return to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is urgent and your immediate attention would be appreciated. Once the Declaration has been issued, information will be provided regarding how businesses can apply for the loans.
