In this installment of our Outlast the Outbreak blog series, we’d like to share some of the funding and resources available to brick-and-mortar businesses during these uncertain times.

All businesses that rely on walk-ins are feeling the pinch right now, but fortunately there are resources available from local, state, and federal government, as well as several nonprofits and corporations. Some of these resources are accessible to business owners and workers across the board, and some are industry-specific resources—for example, funds for food and beverage workers or film industry professionals.

We’ll continuously update this post as we learn about additional resources available to small business owners and employees.
