Save Small Business Coalition
We, the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce have recently joined the Save Small Business Coalition (SSBC), with the goal being to find the quickest way for all businesses to have access to relief funding during this challenging economic time. We have now aligned our efforts with over 100 chambers and business associations nationwide to create America's Recovery Fund Coalition (ARFC) as this joint effort is the best opportunity to realize our goal. Click below to see how you can get involved.
America’s Recovery Fund provides funding to help America’s businesses to retain and rehire staff, pay rent, adapt to new requirements, meet certain debt obligations, and pay state and local taxes. The fund will include strict federal oversight and anti-abuse mechanisms. America’s Recovery Fund will be a vital lifeline to businesses, communities, workers, and state and local governments that rely on their success to support local economies. America’s Recovery Fund Coalition represents 45% of the United States workforce. With more than 150 members across retail, restaurants, theaters, gyms, salons, real estate, the travel industry, and financial services, we represent a combined 58 million American workers. We are asking Congress for support to help our businesses, workers, and communities recover. Click below to sign a pledge to send directly to our Congress in support of this mission.
