Small Business Relief Resources Amid COVID-19

After our webinar on Monday, “Coronavirus Update for the Sports & Fitness Industry,” we received many inquiries regarding small business relief. To best serve our sports and fitness community, we are sending you the following resources to provide the most up-to-date information as possible.

As you know, this situation is very fluid and constantly changing. There is going to be a substantial amount of financial relief and assistance provided at the federal, state and local levels, and SFIA has gathered helpful information to assist you during these challenging times.

We encourage you to refer to the resources below, which we have identified as useful to our members. Please note that some states rely fully on the Small Business Administration (SBA) for financial assistance to their businesses and others have separate state and local programs in place to provide additional aid to businesses harmed by the COVID-19 virus.
