About Rapid Response South Sound

How We Can All Row in the Same Direction Together

Under the guidance of key industry experts, the Chamber is creating a 90-day Rapid Response Team. The Tacoma-Pierce County Chamber and Economic Development Board for Tacoma-Pierce County teams will consult and direct companies directly to advisors who will assist them in the Covid-19 crisis. The consultations will occur via telephone and an online question form. The advisors will be able to direct the companies to resources based on their individual needs.

We have received thousands of questions from businesses over the last couple of weeks during our direct Covid-19 Business Information Call Series. In our conversations, we are noticing some key categories of questions arise. These calls occur three times per week, with an average of 600 companies per call. The areas of concern and focus for business needs include: Capital & Loan Needs, Unemployment and HR, Legal Assistance, Communications, Marketing, & Technology Needs.
