General COVID-19 Awareness & Business Preparation

Loan Assistance

  • All of Wyoming is approved for U.S. Small Business Administration Economic Injury Disaster Loans. Businesses can apply at: sba.gov/disaster

  • The Paycheck Protection Program (part of the CARES Act) is assistance for small businesses and non-profits to help keep their workforces employed during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. The application through the Small Business Administration can be found at: http://ow.ly/n6cb50z2mMM.

Workforce Services & Unemployment

  • Workers who have lost their jobs through layoffs may be eligible for Unemployment Insurance. While that financial assistance does not replace a full paycheck, it can help people through the hard times.
