State Level Assistance

Since each state’s plan to assist businesses varies, the best thing business owners can do is check with their local governor’s office for the latest on state specific assistance, resources and updates. You can also check in with local small business organizations and agencies. Here is a list of state- and local-level small business resources to consult:

Unemployment Resources for Employees

Federal Coronavirus Relief

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES) was signed into law on March 27, 2020.  The $2 trillion CARES act includes thousands of dollars in direct payments to most Americans, and significant loan packages designed to help keep small businesses and corporations afloat. 


The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA; “The Act”) was signed into law on March 18, 2020 and responds to the growing health and economic crises with provisions for paid sick leave, free testing, expanded unemployment benefits and more.  

UPDATE: 3.26.2020 – DOL Issues Emergency Paid Sick Leave Act (EPSLA) and Emergency Family Medical Leave Act (EFMLA) Guidance.  DOL guidance provides good news for employers struggling with state ordered closures.  It appears based on guidance points below that employers do NOT have to pay two weeks EPSLA due to lay-offs or state ordered closures either before or after FFCRA effective date (April 1, 2020).  Instead, employees may be eligible for expanded unemployment benefits
