In a recently conducted survey help better understand the impact the CARES act is having on North Country businesses, ANCA learned the following:
- that out of the 119 business that responded, 3% were unable to apply due to limitations during the application process.
- 95% of businesses applied to EIDL, PPP, or PUA programs, and of those that applied,
- 62% did not hear from the program they applied to.
- 21% have heard that they were approved for assistance,
- and 8% received assistance.
ANCA staff will be following up with respondents of the survey during the coming weeks to continue to gather information about their experience with the stimulus programs.
