COVID-19 INFORMATION & RESOURCES for SMALL BUSINESSES
COVID-19 has dramatically changed the landscape for African American-owned businesses and OUR communities. We must ban TOGETHER to keep our businesses alive, but we must also work even harder to help OUR communities combat this vicious virus.
We have converted a portion of our website to be a resource to you. There are programs available to help you and your business, so check out the information we have provide. Now, in order to do this consistently, we need your help.
Will you join our business organization to work to help, assist, and advocate for African American small business owners and entrepreneurs within the quad counties of Kane, Kendall, DuPage and Will? Our goal is to maximize the profitability of our business communities while enhancing the quality of life for our people. As you know, WE ALL MUST WORK TOGETHER to accomplish this goal.
