COVID-19 Resource Website, Update906.com, available for Upper Peninsula Businesses
A new website has been developed to share key business resources for businesses impacted by COVID-19. This collaborative effort which was developed by the Menominee Business Development Corporation (MEDC) in partnership with InvestUP and economic development partners from across the Upper Peninsula is intended to be a trusted and dedicated resource with the most up-to-date and relevant information available.
“We recognize that so many businesses are enduring challenges as a result of COVID-19 and while there are many resources available, navigating and finding all of them can be its own challenge, shared Nancy Douglas, Exec. Director of the MBDC. “We also know that the U.P. bands together to support one another better than any other area and therefore felt that developing a cohesive website with clear and consistent information would be an important tool for everyone to share and use.”
The updated website features the definition of critical infrastructure industries/workers, small business relief programs, COVID-19 business impact surveys, and key weblinks. In addition, there is a comprehensive list of contacts for local economic development organizations along with regional, state, and federal representatives dedicated to the Upper Peninsula.
