Tampa International Airport addresses our small business community partners during the COVID-19 pandemic:
Business partners and friends, we understand the stress and uncertainty during these difficult times and we are all in this together. To assist you in both your response to the COVID-19 pandemic and the recovery efforts that will be required when this is over, our supportive Tampa Bay community is constantly building resources that may help.
We are fortunate to have a network of agencies and organizations in our community providing a strong support system. Our partners at the Tampa Bay Chamber of Commerce have assembled a collection of links to informative resources for businesses, covering a variety of topics, including small business loans, disaster resources and short term compensation programs.
We understand that this can be a stressful time for our frontline employees as well, and we must address their physical, emotional and financial health in order to sustain our vibrant work force and support them during this period. The United Way Suncoast connects individuals with providers for food and educational resources as well as small business relief. For those who are unsure of the providers that are available in our area, the 211 hotline will assist with the answers and direct them to the United Way Suncoast agency best suited to assist.
Although the Aviation Authority and TPA have scaled back our physical presence in the community, we are here for you and available to assist you throughout this disruption with your questions and concerns. Our team remains fully operational and accessible by phone and online.
