The Windham Region Chamber of Commerce, a member of the Save Small Business Coalition, has joined forces with hundreds of other chambers and business associations to advocate for a fund to help businesses, and America, recover from the COVID pandemic. America’s Recovery Fund Coalition brings together more than 150 members across retail, restaurants, theaters, live events, the travel industry, and financial services to advocate for a fund to help businesses recover. Together, we represent 58 million American workers – 45% of the American workforce.
When people hear America’s Recovery Fund Coalition represents 45% of the entire national workforce, they want to learn a bit about what exactly we advocate. So, we created a graphic (below) to put all the important pieces in one place: who the coalition is, how the fund will work, and why we need it now–not months from now.
Politics and policy will continue to shift –but one thing will remain constant: America’s recovery story will be written by the decisions policymakers make today. America’s Recovery Fund will provide the certainty and support businesses and working families need to reverse the current economic downturn. Our voices MUST be heard by our legislators. The Windham Region Chamber has been working for months with our local municipalities, state officials and our national delegation to represent our members and other small businesses in our region, their needs, their concerns and their obstacles. But we have not only told them the bad news. We have offered REAL solutions that will keep our local businesses viable. Hours and hours of conversations, letter writing, press conferences, meetings and petitions are what we have been diligently working on so that your VOICE is heard in Washington and at the State Capitol.

HOW CAN YOU HELP US?
Tell your Congressional reps that Small Business needs additional funding to survive that offer financial and legal protections, and workforce development for small businesses, their employees, and the chambers of commerce and organizations who help them thrive. It is imperative that we help small businesses recover and get back up to full speed. The economy of our communities, states and nation depend on it.
