 Loudoun Chamber Commends Board of Supervisors Investment in Business Interruption Fund

Lansdowne, VA – The Loudoun County Chamber of Commerce would like to commend the members of the Loudoun County Board of Supervisors for the additional allocation of over $4 million in CARES Act funding to the Business Interruption Fund.  The Board of Supervisor’s leadership along with the Department of Economic Development’s execution of the Business Interruption Fund provides a much-needed lifeline for so many of Loudoun’s businesses affected most by COVID-19.

The Business Interruption Fund has helped hundreds of businesses survive through the economic downturn caused by the pandemic.  This next round of funding will help an even greater number of businesses struggling to keep their staff employed and their doors open.

“Our business community, especially small businesses in the retail and hospitality industries, continue to suffer as they are faced with limited operations due to safety regulations and an overall reduction in consumer traffic,” said the Loudoun Chamber’s Vice President of Membership & Government Affairs, Grafton deButts. “These investments by the County, along with future investments in the Business Interruption Fund, will be critical as we approach the fall and winter months.”
