COVID-19 BUSINESS INSIGHTS AND RELIEF INFORMATION
The COVID-19 pandemic poses unprecedented challenges to all types of Wisconsin businesses whose operations are impacted by disruptions to their supply chains, withering demand for their products and worker unavailability resulting from sustained social distancing.
This page is designed to provide the latest, best information to our clients and the citizens of Wisconsin on resources aimed at maintaining the vitality of the companies upon which our economy depends. As the volume of inquiries through our phone lines and website prevents us from responding individually to people as we would like, we invite you to visit this page regularly. We plan to update this directory as new information and resources become available.
Included on this page are resources available to Wisconsin businesses from WEDC and other local, state and federal agencies.
Small business owners are encouraged to work with their lenders to address the financial challenges they are facing as a result of COVID-19.
