Our team at blumshapiro has been closely following the latest developments and has created several toolkits that we hope will prepare you to take advantage of various relief options.

Additional Financial Relief Resources

Federal, state and local government leaders – as well as professional associations, philanthropic foundations and other groups – are all rolling out loan programs, grant opportunities and other forms of financial relief options on a seemingly constant basis.

Our best piece of advice is to contact your financial advisor to develop a plan that works for you. In the meantime, here are a few resources that may help start that process.
