Macomb County offers resources to reopen business
Macomb County launched a new web page today with resources for businesses that are preparing to reopen as Michigan continues to experience the “flattening” phase of the Coronavirus pandemic. The page offers a one-stop resource with general guidelines for preparing to reopen business, industry specific guidelines, a directory of locally sourced supplies like personal protection equipment and signage, as well as access to county created building signage that business owners can print and display within their own organizations.
“As we begin to see declining numbers in new cases of COVID-19, our businesses are preparing to open in a way that is safe for employees and their customers,” said Vicky Rad, director of the Macomb County Department of Planning & Economic Development. “This new page provides a one-stop place with credible and current resources to help guide businesses. As always, our business development professionals are also available to respond to any business related question through the online portal.”
Since Governor Whitmer's first emergency declaration on March 10, Planning and Economic Development staff have counseled more than 1,200 individual businesses, maintained communication with department clients about funding opportunities and managed a grant program that distributed more than $900,000 to area businesses. County officials are working on a new round of grant funding that will be available to help businesses recover and thrive.
The new web page can be found at www.MacombBusiness.com.
