Responses needed by Rock Island Businesses and Organizations impacted by Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19)     

The Development Association of Rock Island (DARI) and the City of Rock Island are working together to maintain the safety, security, and health of our Rock Island businesses and community.

DARI is working collaboratively with the City of Rock Island serving as a central resource for Rock Island businesses impacted by the COVID-19. DARI and the City are working diligently to collect information from Rock Island businesses and organizations negatively affected by the COVID-19.

In order to best determine immediate needs of our Rock Island businesses and organizations, we ask for you to please complete the following form as soon as possible (ASAP). This form is to assist DARI and the City of Rock Island in gathering data so that we know how best to serve you.

As you may have heard from the Small Business Administration’s previous announcement, the “SBA will work directly with state Governors to provide targeted, low-interest loans to small businesses and nonprofits that have been severely impacted by Coronavirus (COVID-19).”

The Illinois Department of Commerce & Economic Opportunity (DCEO) is working diligently to secure access to helpful resources for small businesses throughout the state of Illinois. As a part of this process, the DCEO needs to collect information from organizations that will be negatively affected. This information will assist the DCEO in requesting an economic injury disaster declaration from the SBA.

Please take a few minutes to complete this form so the DCEO can provide the necessary information to the SBA.

Please continue to monitor this page as regular updates will be forthcoming. Other helpful links for Rock Island businesses can be found here:
