Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program
The Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan program provides short-term, zero-interest working capital loans that are intended to “bridge the gap” between the time a disaster impacts a business and when a business has secured longer term recovery funding such as federally or commercially available loans, insurance claims or other resources.
Hurricane Ian Business Recovery Guide
The Charlotte County Economic Development Office has put together a business resource guide with federal, state, and local resources to help your business recover from Hurricane Ian.
Charlotte County Daily Resource List

The U.S. Small Business Administration North and South Florida District Offices; SBA's Disaster Office (FOCE East); the Florida Small Business Development Center Network; and the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity are working together to ensure our small business owners have the information they need to prepare for hurricanes and other natural disasters.
