North Carolina Department of Commerce

The North Carolina CDBG-CV Program is designed to help units of local government respond to and recover from the health and economic impacts of COVID-19. The program will assist non-entitlement areas across the state, which include incorporated municipalities under 50,000 and counties under 200,000 in population, by supporting public service, public facilities, and special economic development activities. N.C. Commerce will award CDBG-CV funds on a first-come, first-served basis with a focus on local needs identified by the community in collaboration with state and local health officials.

Buyers & Sellers Connection

Now more than ever, buying small, local, and diverse is critical. The Institute’s Buyers & Sellers Connect tool brings buyers and sellers together.” Sellers: Register your business, goods, and services to be searched by buyers across the state. Buyers: Search a repository of small, local, and diverse businesses across North Carolina to find the goods and services you need.

Manufacturing for Covid-19

Across North Carolina, companies have been repurposing their lines for the production of medical products. Distilleries like the Hackney and Durham Distillery have re-tooled their production to create hand sanitizer. Kitsbow has re-purposed their sewing chops for masks. Intermarket have been creating signs for medical facilities. Looking to change production for Covid-19? Reach out to Matt Kemnitz at N.C. Emergency Management.

Surveys to Support Local Businesses

Longmont, CO has developed a survey to gather information from downtown property owners in order to better support them in future property tax discussions. Information includes who their tenants are, the tenant’s ability to stay open, action they are taking to support their tenants, and what kind of losses they are expecting. Similar surveys could be implemented to understand where time and funds are best directed to support those in need.

Local Government Emergency Loan Programs: Fayetteville and Belmont, NC

Two North Carolina cities, Fayetteville and Belmont, each established emergency loan programs to aid local small businesses. These emergency loans are meant to provide short-term, immediate funds to businesses struggling to pay for expenses as a result decreases in revenue from covid-19.

Beaufort County, NC EDC connecting manufacturers to meet covid-19 needs

In order to meet the increased need for medical supplies due to covid-19, the North Carolina Department of Public Safety (NCDPS) and Beaufort County economic developers have been working with local manufacturers to repurpose their businesses and produce healthcare products. A gin distillery, for example, started producing hand sanitizer.

Durham Feast: Leveraging local farms and restaurants for school lunches

Durham Feast is an innovative partnership between Durham Public Schools, Durham County Government, the Durham Public Schools Foundation, and local nonprofits and restaurants. In response to covid-19, the partnership launched a meal program, where families can go to sites and receive free children’s breakfast and lunches prepared by local restaurants. This program is an example of how local resources like restaurants and farms can be leveraged to meet needs during an emergency.
