COVID-19 – Business Resources Update

In an effort to inform the business community with the latest resources available for businesses affected by COVID-19, the City encourages affected business owners to review the following programs and initiatives:

Programs offered by the Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity:


  • Short Time Compensation Program for Employees: The program permits prorated reemployment assistance benefits to employees whose work hours and earnings are reduced as part of a Short Time Compensation plan to avoid total layoff of some employees. Review eligibility requirements and application guidelines at

  • Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan: Available to small business owners that experienced economic damage as a result of COVID-19. These short-term, interest-free working capital loans are intended to “bridge the gap” between the time a major catastrophe hits and when a business has secured longer term recovery resources, such as sufficient profits from a revived business, receipt of payments on insurance claims or federal disaster assistance.
