Omaha, Nebraska – The Nebraska Department of Economic Development, the Nebraska Chamber of Commerce, the University of Nebraska and other business-related organizations are reaching out to Nebraska businesses to better understand the initial and potential future impact of the coronavirus (COVID-19) on the revenue and workforce of business organizations. The goal is to find the best ways to support the Nebraska business community.
The Nebraska Business Development Center (NBDC) at the University of Nebraska is working with UNO’s Center for Public Affairs Research (CPAR)—and in collaboration with University of Nebraska-Lincoln, State of Nebraska and the Greater Omaha Chamber of Commerce to develop a survey for Nebraska businesses. CPAR will capture the survey results and publish the statewide report. The survey will be in both English and Spanish language versions.
If you are a Nebraska business impacted by COVID-19, please take the survey:
The survey will close on April 24, 2020.
