Information for Shoreline

We are acutely aware of the impacts to local businesses and non-profits from COVID-19. We have established an internal COVID-19 business response team, and, in collaboration with partners around the region and at the federal level we are exploring every avenue possible to bring support to our businesses. 

Most importantly, it is critical to document business and nonprofit impacts as the situation is unfolding, both for insurance purposes and for potential future relief efforts by state and federal agencies. Along with our partners, we are collecting information on the impacts to local businesses and want to hear from you. See the Share Your Story tab below for more information.

Please reach out to us if you have any questions about resources, or if we can in any way be of assistance.
