DATE, APRIL 2020 – Regional public and private industry partners launch the Relief Program Eligibility Wizard for businesses to navigate federal and state financial relief programs in response to COVID-19.
In continued response to the impacts of Covid-19, the Howard County Chamber collaborated with industry partners, business leaders, and statewide organizations to build an online tool for businesses to more easily identify state and federal relief resources they may be eligible for. The goal of the tool is to provide an updated one-stop destination for businesses as they seek to navigate the myriad of financial relief programs.
By visiting the wizard and answering a short series of questions, businesses will be able to quickly identify which State and Federal programs they are eligible for and will be pointed to the respective resources with directions to apply.
In collaboration with legal, financial, and human resources subject matter experts (SME’s) the team will continue to monitor federal and state resources and update the Relief Program Eligibility Wizard as new programs become available, or as existing programs change in availability.
Partners and contributors include: Howard County Economic Development Authority, Mindgrub, BTS Software Solutions, Maryland Department of Commerce, Howard County Chamber of Commerce, Maryland Tech Council, Maryland Chamber of Commerce, IBM, and various industry SME’s including KatzAbosch, Capital Services, and Offit Kurman Attorneys at Law.
