Small Business Survey

The State of Illinois is seeking input from small businesses on the impact of COVID-19. The response will assist the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) in evaluating Illinois' request for an economic injury disaster declaration resulting in loans for affected businesses and nonprofits. Small businesses in Illinois that have suffered economic injury as a result of COVID-19 are encouraged to submit their information to the Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity. Information obtained from this form will only be used to assist in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from SBA and identifying the greatest areas of need. Note: small businesses are considered less than 500 employees.
