Just a quick note — if you’re a small business owner in Humboldt or Del Norte counties and you’re suffering at the moment, the place you want to be is at the North Coast Small Business Development Center’s special COVID-19 resources page.
The crew over there has assembled an enormous number of federal, state and local resources for businesses that are struggling. You can sign up for their extremely informative daily newsletters, register for their COVID-19 webinar series or watch old episodes, browse a list of capital programs that are assisting small businesses, or sign up for a direct consultation with SBDC staff.
If you’re in Humboldt County, the very first thing the SBDC is asking you to do is take this COVID-19 Economic Impact Survey from the Humboldt County Office of Emergency Services. Your answers are confidential and will be used to help the county secure disaster relief funds in the future.
Anyway: If you didn’t know about this very comprehensive local resource compiled by dedicated, on-the-ground people … now you do.
