With so much funding, assistance, and recovery programs underway, it’s often difficult to sift through the 10s of programs and map out the ones applicable to your business.

This ‘Comeback Business Guide’ by Gov-Biz sums up the various programs that offer incentives, funding, and assistance for business owners. In addition, you can get decent support from the governor’s economics office in some key areas.
