Your Story Needed for Oregon to Receive Federal Coronavirus Funds

Date: March 17, 2020

Governor’s office trying to meet the threshold to qualify for small business assistance

Gov. Kate Brown is asking small-business owners who have been affected by the coronavirus to share their stories so that Oregon can qualify for federal assistance.

Examples of economic disruption can be sent directly by email to Leah Horner, the governor’s jobs and economy policy adviser, [email protected]

In a poll of its members released March 13, NFIB found about 23% of small-business owners negatively affected by the coronavirus in the following ways:

  • 42% reported slower sales
  • 39% experienced supply chain disruptions
  • 4% had sick employees.

The state’s ability to access federal assistance is contingent on local businesses speaking up and letting it know that they are struggling through these tough times.

NFIB is joining with other Oregon business associations in helping spread the word.
