Governments around the world are waking up to the fact that the COVID-19 pandemic is having a major impact on small businesses and are beginning to act accordingly. In the US, both the federal government and all 50 state governments are implementing programs to support small businesses and their employees during these difficult times. Many of these programs are focused on monetary assistance.
As a service to our Main Street members, we have created a page dedicated to providing you with helpful government resources available to small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The resources are organized by region, country and state with a brief description and a link directly to the government resource page. This list will be updated regularly as the situation evolves so we encourage you to bookmark this page.
If you are an eBay seller, we also encourage you to check out this new blog post from Jordan Sweetnam, eBay SVP & GM, North America. In this post he provides information about the steps eBay is taking to help small and medium businesses on our site who are dealing with the business impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The eBay Government Relations Team will continue to monitor this situation globally and keep you informed.
Stay safe and healthy!
