Are you looking for resources to help your small business recover from the economic impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic? Recovery doesn't look the same for everyone and businesses owned by marginalized community members can often be left behind, highlighting inequities that already existed before the economic downturn. The Utah LGBTQ+ Chamber of Commerce is partnering with the Salt Lake County Office of Regional Development (EICAP Program) to help businesses connect with resources that can aid in recovery.
