Small businesses and their employees are being severely impacted by the sharp economic downturn resulting from the coronavirus health crisis in the U.S.  These small businesses are vital to our localities and state, employing 47% of the private workforce in Virginia (SBA).  Many of these businesses will struggle to survive and recover from the crisis, with enduring impacts for Virginia’s localities.  This webinar will present an outlook for small business and specific tools and strategies for government and community officials to support small business recovery.  Representatives from state, regional and local organizations that are working to support small business in Virginia, as well as small business owners, will discuss how local officials can help small businesses survive and recover.
