A survey just opened today to help determine the economic impact of COVID-19 on businesses and nonprofits in King, Pierce, and Snohomish Counties.

Button: Take the Survey

Created by the City of Seattle, Greater Seattle Partners, and the Seattle Metropolitan Chamber of Commerce, the Economic Impact Survey will inform recovery efforts and aid for nonprofits, small businesses, and the arts and cultural sector.

“We know our arts and cultural sector is hurting and we are doing everything we can to help them through this crisis. We rise and fall together, which is why it’s so important that we are all counted and included in this regional economic recovery effort.”

Randy Engstrom, Director, Seattle Office of Arts & Culture

“The Survey results will be critical to maximize state and federal support and direct local resources to save jobs and get back to business as soon as possible. We urge all businesses and non-profits organizations in King, Pierce and Snohomish counties to share their economic impacts so we can quickly and effectively request emergency funding.”

Brian P. McGowan, CEO, Greater Seattle Partners
