COVID-19 business resource website
MARQUETTE — A new website has been developed to share key resources for businesses impacted by COVID-19.
The collaborative effort, which was developed by InvestUP in partnership with 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, organizers said in a news release.
“We recognize that so many U.P.-based 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,” said Marty Fittante, InvestUP CEO, in a news release. “We 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.”
Businesses are invited to visit, share and link to www.update906.com. The frequently updated website features the definition of critical infrastructure industries/workers, small business relief programs, COVID-19 business impact surveys and key web links. There also is a comprehensive list of contacts for local economic development organizations along with regional, state and federal representatives dedicated to supporting the U.P.
