Coronavirus (COVID-19) Resources for Businesses

As we continue to deal with the COVID-19, it is important that our businesses in Clinton are aware of the economic resources available for them to face our current situation. That being said, the Department of Economic Development for the City of Clinton wanted to share with you the information that was put out by the state regarding the “SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program” to support our local businesses. Please share this information with anyone that you think could benefit from it.


    • Mississippi is working closely with the U.S. Small Business Administration to activate the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program so we can protect our small businesses and their communities. The SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan program provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.
    • In another effort to help Mississippi small businesses, the Mississippi Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is urging small business owners to fill out and submit a coronavirus impact report. “We are collecting this information so that Mississippi may request an Economic Injury Declaration from the Small Business Administration to aid in the economic loss suffered as a result of the COVID-19 event,” MEMA said in a statement.
