The Greater Ellettsville Area Chamber of Commerce is working in conjunction with other community partners such as BEDC and the Bloomington Chamber. We will do our best to share information as it becomes available.
We want to make you aware of several resources that are available during this uncertain time.
A COVID-19 resource page has been set-up here.
This resource page is a collaborative effort of the Greater Bloomington Chamber of Commerce, the Bloomington Economic Development Corp., Greater Ellettsville Area Chamber of Commerce, Mallor Grodner Attorneys, Dimension Mill and others. If you have suggestions for other resources to include, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.

COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund
United Way of Monroe County and nearly 30 local organizations are partnering to launch the COVID-19 Emergency Relief Fund. Donors can contribute to support immediate economic stability and basic needs in Monroe, Owen, and Greene Counties. The fund focuses on supporting area nonprofits, residential needs for sheltered individuals, temporary staffing or volunteer mobilization efforts, and local food security and financial assistance programs.

SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loans
The Administration has allocated $50 billion to the Small Business Administration (SBA) for Economic Injury Disaster Loans. For Hoosiers to gain access to this funding, we need to collect small business economic impact data from every county in Indiana so that Governor Holcomb can declare an economic injury disaster.
The Small Business Administration is working diligently to gain access to this funding and would greatly appreciate your help. Please complete this form to share how COVID-19 has impacted your business. Information obtained from this form will only be used to assist in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from SBA and identifying greatest areas of need. Once a disaster declaration is made for designated areas within Indiana, information on the application process for Economic Injury Disaster Loan assistance will be updated at www.SBA.gov/disaster.
