The Greater Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce created a channel for businesses dealing with the impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic to find information, share concerns and request support.
The effort, known as Support Sioux Falls, is based on a website at supportsiouxfalls.biz and includes a resource hotline – (605) 373-2005 or firstname.lastname@example.org. These tools provide access to information needed for business operations, connect consumers to ways they can support local businesses and offer a channel for business leaders to share concerns about the type of ongoing support they need from government and program leaders.
Among the website features are:
1. Consumer-focused directories of restaurants, retailers and general businesses. Businesses can register information about special offers or ways they have adjusted their business model to continue serving customers in the current environment.
2. Resource documents and links local, state and federal information for businesses in the light of COVID-19. The resources include information on loan and grant programs, federal policy updates and operational guidance for employers.
3. Access to the Business Resource Hotline. Businesses can use the site to share feedback on how the pandemic is impacting your business. The Chamber is in regular contact with our local, state and federal officials and will relay the business community's concerns and priority issues to lawmakers to aid in decision making and public policy formation.
The Greater Sioux Falls Chamber of Commerce seeks to serve our business community. Support Sioux Falls is one way we are working to fulfill that purpose in uncertain times. Your Chamber is here to support you – please reach out if we can be of assistance
