“Many small businesses across the state of Missouri are experiencing extraordinary hardships today due to the necessary social distancing measures that have been put in place to help stop the spread of coronavirus,” said Daniel P. Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry. “While businesses of all sizes are being adversely impacted, small businesses are often the least able to withstand economic changes this swift and severe. The Missouri Chamber urges impacted small businesses to consider applying for disaster assistance loans so that they can remain in business and keep Missourians employed. Programs like this will be vital to helping our state economy recover.”
