Federal and State Programs for Small Businesses

Message from Brendan Hansen - USA Swimming Director of Team Services

Hi Everyone
 I have spoke to many of you over the last 3-4 days and it definitely a situation many of us have ever seen or dealt with. As I mentioned to most of you, attached is an information document that you can share with your clubs and coaches.

The document is divided into five sections: 

  1. Federal Resources concerning the Coronavirus.
  2. State Resources concerning the Coronavirus. These generally link to a state’s Department of Health Coronavirus website.
  3. USA Swimming Coronavirus website link.
  4. State Business Resources. This section contains general business links to states business resources such as the Small Business Development Centers or a link to the state’s Small Business Administration. This section may give teams an idea of additional places to look for general business support.
  5. General Business Resources. This includes two links to general business resources.

If you know of any other website resources please let me know so we can share with each other. Similar documents are being sent to all the General Chairs and LSC Offices in the other zones. We most likely will also have a link to this document in the upcoming Coaches Connectionnewsletter which should be coming out next week.

For those of you that I haven’t been able to connect with, lets get on the phone! I appreciate all that you do for swimming and its community.
