Coronavirus updates


This is an unprecedented moment in our history. COVID-19 has challenged us across all areas of our lives, impacting the health of our loved ones and the continuity of our business community with a wave that has been felt over the entire planet. 

Your Chamber of Commerce has served this community for over seventy years. We have weathered many economic storms. We will continue that legacy!

If you haven’t already, please take a moment to complete the State of Florida Business Damage Assessment survey and the Pompano Beach Economic Response Team Business Survey to assess the impact of COVID-19 on Florida’s local business operations. The survey, managed by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity (DEO), will evaluate businesses affected by COVID-19 and the impacts the virus has had on the local economy so actions to implement appropriate relief programs can begin:

“Our residents are hurting,” said Broward County Mayor Dale V.C. Holness. “This $25 million rental assistance program can provide much needed financial assistance to many, many families who need our help, and help protect landlords and small businesses who need to collect rents to pay mortgages and other expenses related to property ownership.”COVID-19 has impacted many Broward County families in many ways. If you have loss of income not related to COVID-19, and need help during this difficult pandemic, please visit our Family Success Division website to see what other resources may be available to you.

County Launches CARES Act Grant Program Website

The County Commission is establishing a grant program using CARES Act funds for small businesses and non-profits in Broward County to help mitigate the impacts of COVID-19.   

The Broward County CARES Act Small Business and Non-Profit Assistance Grant Program is designed to aid small businesses with 20 employees or less and non-profits with 25 employees or less. The program will be administered through the County’s Office of Economic and Small Business Development, while local partners will provide free technical assistance to applicants.  

$25 million in federal CARES Act funding will be allocated to the small business grant and an additional $10 million for non-profits. These funds can be used to reimburse the costs of business interruption related expenditures caused by COVID-19’s required closures and/or operating restrictions. Funds are not a loan, and do not have to be paid back. The County is also assisting some cities with administering their CARES Act funding for small businesses, while other cities will administer their funds directly. 

“Broward County Commissioners have always been huge supporters of small businesses. Every business in the County is important to us and we hope this one-time grant award in the amount of either $5,000, $10,000, or $15,000 (these are the tiers of support for non-profit and for profit grants) will provide some help to companies navigating these challenging times. We truly do believe every little bit helps. For the profit businesses, priority will be given to small businesses located in six of the County’s most economically distressed zip codes and to businesses that have not previously received any federal COVID-19 related business assistance funding such as the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL), CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), or the State of Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan,” said Sandy-Michael McDonald, Director of Office of Economic and Small Business Development. 

The application period is not open yet. However, businesses can visit the newly created website to learn more about the Broward County CARES Small Business Grant and the Non-Profit Grant program including eligibility, application process, technical assistance, and much more.

(CDC has provided separate guidance for healthcare settings.) This guidance also provides planning considerations for community spread of COVID-19. For more information visit:

SBA and Treasury Announce Simpler PPP Forgiveness for Loans of $50,000 or Less

WASHINGTON— Yesterday, the U.S. Small Business Administration, in consultation with the Treasury Department, released a simpler loan forgiveness application for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans of $50,000 or less. This action streamlines the PPP forgiveness process to provide financial and administrative relief to America’s smallest businesses while also ensuring sound stewardship of taxpayer dollars.“ The PPP has provided 5.2 million loans worth $525 billion to American small businesses, providing critical economic relief and supporting more than 51 million jobs,” said Secretary Steven T. Mnuchin.  “Today’s action streamlines the forgiveness process for PPP borrowers with loans of $50,000 or less and thousands of PPP lenders who worked around the clock to process loans quickly,” he continued.  “We are committed to making the PPP forgiveness process as simple as possible while also protecting against fraud and misuse of funds.  We continue to favor additional legislation to further simplify the forgiveness process.” “Nothing will stop the Trump Administration from supporting great American businesses and our great American workers. The Paycheck Protection Program has been an overwhelming success and served as a historic lifeline to America’s hurting small businesses and tens of millions of workers. The new form introduced today demonstrates our relentless commitment to using every tool in our toolbelt to help small businesses and the banks that have participated in this program,” said Administrator Jovita Carranza. “We are continuing to ensure that small businesses are supported as they recover.”SBA and Treasury have also eased the burden on PPP lenders, allowing lenders to process forgiveness applications more swiftly.  SBA began approving PPP forgiveness applications and remitting forgiveness payments to PPP lenders for PPP borrowers on October 2, 2020.  SBA will continue to process all PPP forgiveness applications in an expeditious manner.

SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans and Advance Program Reopened to All Eligible Small Businesses and Non-Profits Impacted by COVID-19 Pandemic
WASHINGTON – To further meet the needs of U.S. small businesses and non-profits, the U.S. Small Business Administration reopened the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and EIDL Advance program portal to all eligible applicants experiencing economic impacts due to COVID-19 today.
“The SBA is strongly committed to working around the clock, providing dedicated emergency assistance to the small businesses and non-profits that are facing economic disruption due to the COVID-19 impact.  With the reopening of the EIDL assistance and EIDL Advance application portal to all new applicants, additional small businesses and non-profits will be able to receive these long-term, low interest loans and emergency grants – reducing the economic impacts for their businesses, employees and communities they support,” said SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza.  “Since EIDL assistance due to the pandemic first became available to small businesses located in every state and territory, SBA has worked to provide the greatest amount of emergency economic relief possible.  To meet the unprecedented need, the SBA has made numerous improvements to the application and loan closing process, including deploying new technology and automated tools.”
SBA’s EIDL program offers long-term, low interest assistance for a small business or non-profit.  These loans can provide vital economic support to help alleviate temporary loss of revenue.  EIDL assistance can be used to cover payroll and inventory, pay debt or fund other expenses.  Additionally, the EIDL Advance will provide up to $10,000 ($1,000 per employee) of emergency economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing temporary difficulties, and these emergency grants do not have to be repaid.
SBA’s COVID-19 Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and EIDL Advance
The SBA is offering low interest federal disaster loans for working capital to small businesses and non-profit organizations that are suffering substantial economic injury as a result of COVID-19 in all U.S. states, Washington D.C., and territories.
These loans may be used to pay debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact, and that are not already covered by a Paycheck Protection Program loan. The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses.  The interest rate for non-profits is 2.75%.
To keep payments affordable for small businesses, SBA offers loans with long repayment terms, up to a maximum of 30 years. Plus, the first payment is deferred for one year.
In addition, small businesses and non-profits may request, as part of their loan application, an EIDL Advance of up to $10,000. The EIDL Advance is designed to provide emergency economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing a temporary loss of revenue.  This advance will not have to be repaid, and small businesses may receive an advance even if they are not approved for a loan.
SBA’s EIDL and EIDL Advance are just one piece of the expanded focus of the federal government’s coordinated response.
The SBA is also assisting small businesses and non-profits with access to the federal forgivable loan program, the Paycheck Protection Program, which is currently accepting applications until June 30, 2020.
For additional information, please visit the SBA disaster assistance website at

When you access the entry link above, you will be provided a choice – to install the WebEx plug-in for your preferred browser or to join the web conference using a temporary path. Either option is acceptable.

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Today, Governor Ron DeSantis and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity announced that the Department of Economic Opportunity has awarded more than $2 million in funding for military-related programs through the Defense Reinvestment Grant Program and the Defense Infrastructure Grant Program.

“During these unprecedented times, it is imperative that we continue to support Florida’s military installations and their surrounding communities,” said Dane Eagle, Executive Director of the Department of Economic Opportunity. “Across our state, military installation communities support not only military personnel and their families, but they create jobs and opportunities for many Floridians.”

Fast-tracking savings

FPL has taken the unprecedented step of asking the Florida Public Service Commission permission to fast-track fuel savings to customers through a one-time bill decrease of nearly 25% in May. Normally, Florida utilities spread these types of savings out over time. However, FPL believes it’s important to infuse customers with as much money in their pockets as quickly as possible. If customers are experiencing hardship as a result of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, FPL has resources available at, in addition to those available from federal, state and local authorities.

To further assist customers, FPL has also implemented the same policies that it does during crises, which include: Suspending electrical disconnections, providing payment extensions, waiving certain late payment fees for customers in a hardship situation.



Comcast has launched program enhancements to help students access the Internet during the Coronavirus crisis.
