In an effort to provide short-term relief for Sunshine State businesses, Governor Ron DeSantis activated the Florida Small Business Emergency Bridge Loan Program.

Under the program, Florida businesses with no more than 100 employees may apply for short-term interest-free loans of up to $50,000. Managed by the Florida Department of Economic Opportunity, businesses will need to apply by May 8th.
