City & County of Honolulu Continues Small Business Relief and Recovery Fund
The City and County of Honolulu is extending their Small Business Relief and Recovery Fund with the purpose of reimbursing small businesses for costs incurred from business interruption due to Emergency Proclamations and to help small businesses implement safety precautions to prevent the spread of COVID-19.
Hawaii Business Online Eligibility Questionnaire
DBEDT has partnered with United States Digital Response, a non-partisan effort to assist the U.S. government, to help Hawaii small businesses.
Right now, governments need help pre-qualifying and sorting large numbers of applicants, while loan applicants need a way to quickly understand which programs they qualify for and to take the steps to apply.
We have built an online eligibility questionnaire which makes it fast and easy for small business owners to understand what support programs are available to them, and to quickly take steps to federal, state and other loan programs.
