Treasure Coast Regional Planning Council (TCRPC) has created a survey on access to capital (i.e. loans, credit, investment capital, or other forms on monetary support) that are crucial for a small business to continue operation, especially in times of need. After seeing the effects that COVID-19 had on local business, now more than ever, it is necessary to re-evaluate current programs and procedures and improve ways in which we get financial support to businesses seeking it.

The survey itself is meant to reach business owners, nonprofits and independent workers in the Treasure Coast Region of Indian River, St. Lucie, Martin, and Palm Beach counties with the overall goal of helping us better understand the experiences and challenges related to obtaining funding resources for small businesses. The survey should take approximately 10 minutes, and with the information we collect we will be able to analyze what tools, strategies, and approaches are needed to address the challenges faced. All information will be reported in general terms and individual business information will remain confidential. With this in mind, we hope our analysis will help to craft solutions and clarify what resources are available, or still needed, for all new and existing businesses.

If you would like to help us spread awareness of this opportunity for community voices to be heard, please feel free to share this email or the survey link with your contacts, partners, or on your social media platforms. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to reach out to Stephanie Heidt at sheidt@tcrpc.org or by phone at (772) 221-4060.
