Northeastern Pennsylvania’s small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They bring life to our downtowns, are key economic drivers, employ our families, friends, and neighbors, and support our communities. Some were established several generations ago and some in recent years. All, however, are suffering due to the challenges brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. The necessary shutdown of every state in our nation has taken a serious toll on the future of these businesses. The livelihoods of their owners and employees and our regional economy lie in the balance.
While our region is rich with exemplary organizations and generous individuals willing to help businesses keep the lights on and people employed, many owners find themselves unaware or unable to access the services needed to get them through this critical time.
