Small Business Relief Fund Crowdfunding Website

The Birmingham Shopping District created a crowdfunding website to raise funds for Personal Protective Equipment for Birmingham small businesses affected by the pandemic. This P.P.E. equipment will be supplied to service related businesses in the city such as our retailers, restaurants, salons, and spas. Oakland County Main Street will match up to $4,000 of funds raised on the site. If you are able to do so, please consider supporting our small businesses at https://bit.ly/bhamrelieffund


COVID-19 Resource Links


Much information has been provided to businesses on how to navigate this ever-changing situation. We'd like to recommend a few websites that have done a good job synthesizing the most important resources:
 
  1. The Michigan Economic Development Corporation's website has information from various organizations like the Small Business Administration (SBA) and also Small Business Development Center (SBDC). The SBDC link has several good webinars that we recommend you watch. Scroll through the entire MEDC website as there is a lot of information available to read.
