We wanted to take this opportunity to once again share some of the resources we are gathering for you. Our entire team is working hard to get our community recovered and back stronger than ever. Our resource page is being continuously updated as more information comes in and/or changes. This page is to help you navigate through all of the information regarding the CARES Act, including Economic Impact Disaster Loans (EIDL), Payroll Protection Program (PPP), Employee Retention Tax Credits, and other available resources. And it is not all financial, we have HR resources, best practices for essential businesses remaining open, and more. If you haven’t visited our page recently, we encourage you to do so. Information is arriving and changing so rapidly that we are also providing daily updates via our blog. You can subscribe and have news delivered right to your inbox. If you haven’t seen our video series Conversations with the Chamber, we encourage you to do so. We have a few other tools we would like to share: If your business is thriving due to your industry and you are hiring, please use our job bank. While there are a lot of tools out there, this is a local bank to connect local residents with local employees. Perhaps your business has pivoted, changed, or temporarily closed. You can use your login in the Members Only section to update your information that appears in our Business Directory. If you are having a virtual event, please feel free to add it to our Frisco Community Calendar. You can do that by filling out this form found here. If you have a coupon or discount you would like to offer, you can do that by logging in to the Members Only section. Our Ambassadors have put together a virtual weekly Chamber Works to stay connected. Registration is free but limited to 100 participants. You can find meeting information by clicking the event on our calendar. Beginning on April 16, 2020, registration will be required and the registration link can be found by visiting the event on that same calendar. Many of our committees are now having virtual events. Stay informed with our Frisco Chamber Event Calendar. If you are a restaurant providing curbside, take-out, and/or delivery, we have a survey form you can fill out to let us know. We have a link to the list of open restaurants on our home page. If you are not receiving our weekly Advocacy Updates and would like to, please subscribe here. Please know that we will continue to bring your resources and information to help you through this difficult time. The Frisco Chamber and our entire staff are here for you. Please continue to reach out to us to let us know how we can help or if you have resources to provide.
