ROUND LAKE BEACH – As the economic tolls from the COVID-19 pandemic continue to cause financial hardship for small-business owners, state Rep. Sam Yingling, D-Grayslake, is encouraging Latino business owners to complete a short survey detailing how the public health crisis has impacted their business to find ways to get relief.
“While the financial struggles caused by the COVID-19 pandemic have affected many, small-business owners have been particularly impacted by this crisis,” Yingling said. “In order to find the best ways to provide relief, I am highly encouraging Latino business owners to complete a short survey on how this pandemic has affected them and their business.”
The Office of Minority Economic Empowerment, a part of the Illinois Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity, is collecting feedback that includes how businesses have been impacted by COVID-19 and assistance needs. The OMEE will evaluate each business and provide owners with potential resources to find relief.
