COVID-19: Selected Federal Resources for Businesses Seeking to Assist with Research and Manufacturing Efforts [Updated July 1, 2020] [open pdf - 691KB]
From the Document: "Some U.S. businesses have been engaging in research or retooling their manufacturing operations, supply chains, or products to assist with fighting the Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic. This CRS [Congressional Research Service] Insight presents selected federal resources potentially relevant to businesses that seek to support COVID-19 mobilization efforts. At the subfederal level, state and local economic development or commerce agencies may be valuable general resources for new and established enterprises. A few local and state governments have created their own COVID-19 grants for businesses to ramp up production of critical supplies, such as personal protective equipment. These kinds of state or local government initiatives may vary widely; in many jurisdictions, they may not exist at all. For other overviews of resources available to businesses, such as those seeking economic relief from adverse COVID-19 impacts, see CRS Insight IN11301, 'Small Businesses and COVID-19: Relief and Assistance Resources,' and CRS Insight IN11368, 'Larger Businesses and COVID-19: Financial Relief and Assistance Resources.'"
