Coronavirus Update: To slow the spread of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), we have significantly altered the Hermosa Beach Chamber of Commerce's operations to focus on essential services. Sign up to receive our Wednesday Weekly newsletter to stay posted and follow our social media channels for updates. The Chamber of Commerce is dedicated on helping our business community. You can find information regarding the COVID-19 with resources and up to date information on our site. We encourage all employees to wear protective masks and gloves when dealing with the public. Thank you.

Attn Chamber Members,

We are here working to keep you as up to date as possible and want to brief you on available resources.
 
Currently the Los Angeles County Economic Development Corporation (LAEDC) are partnering with our Federal, State, and Los Angeles County officials to bring any business affected by any slowdown or shutdown with a variety of emergency economic programs (e.g. financing, work-sharing, paid family leave, payroll tax extensions, etc.) in an effort to help tide
businesses over during this coronavirus crisis.  Things are very fluid and new programs are being announced by our government (Federal and State) each day to help businesses.  You can check out the link to see  updates on programs at https://laedc.org/coronavirus/ .
 
Attached are programs available now or soon to be announced to help
businesses.  In the event that you may have to lay people off, there is a Los Angeles County Rapid Response program that can assist laid-off or soon to be laid-off employees with access to unemployment insurance and other programs that are available.  We advise businesses to check into the Work Sharing program offered through the California Employment Development Department (EDD) first before reducing hours or laying off any employees as there is State funding to offset business work reduction and avert layoffs.
