If your business has been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, we have assembled a list of resources for you. From lists of active grants and loans to reopening guidelines, our COVID-19 page is continuously updated with information on what resources are available to entrepreneurs we work with every day.
NEON has compiled information on how to receive assistance if your business was impacted by the recent uprising, as well as ways you can help with the rebuilding efforts. Many of the resources listed are specifically for Northside businesses.
