Westchester Office of Economic Development Bounce Back Survey - extended to April 28

When the pandemic started, the Office of Economic Development sent out a survey that helped them focus on the needs of businesses and nonprofit organizations. They created webinars, helped with loan applications, and provided direct grants. They want to hear from you once again so they can help you to Bounce Back.  Please take this survey and share it widely, so our partners in government can hear from as many people and organizations as possible.
