DCEO Offers Financial Help to Businesses

The Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) is working diligently to secure access to helpful resources for small businesses throughout the state of Illinois.

As you may have heard from the Small Business Administration's previous announcement, the “SBA will work directly with state Governors to provide targeted, low-interest loans to small businesses and nonprofits that have been severely impacted by Coronavirus (COVID-19)."

As a part of this process, the DCEO needs to collect information from organizations that will be negatively affected. This information will assist the DCEO in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from the SBA.

Please take a few minutes to complete this form so the DCEO can provide the necessary information to the SBA.
