The Dania Beach Community Redevelopment Agency cares about our local businesses and their sustainability during these difficult times. In order to aid our business community, we are in regular contact with other economic development organizations and compiling a list of resources and tools available to help businesses prepare, respond, and recover from the COVID-19 pandemic.

The Florida Small Business Development Council of Florida is encouraging small businesses to complete the business damage assessment. This survey helps determine the need for COVID-19 disaster assistance. The survey can be found here.

Together, we will come through these unprecedented times.
