[ARCHIVED] 03/20/2020: Important Business Update and Business Resources from DECD Commissioner David Lehman

Trumbull Economic Development

Yesterday Governor Lamont and I hosted a conference call with over 5,000 people to talk about what the state has done and is planning to do to support our businesses impacted by COVID-19. We want to thank everyone who participated and shared their thoughts and questions. We’ll be taking all of it into consideration as we forge a path forward toward economic recovery.

During the call the Governor mentioned our new bridge-loan program that we’re setting up to help small and medium-sized businesses. We’re finalizing the details, so expect to hear more about it early next week. Our goal is to make the loan process as simple as possible.

If you missed the call, here are links to the audio:
