COVID-19 Impacts

Dear Business Owner:  This survey is confidential and all responses are confidential and optional.   The compiled data from the surveys will be used by the Town to demonstrate to state and federal funders the circumstances of local Middleborough business as we apply for available COVID-19 recovery funding aid.  The results also will be used to determine what type of business support is needed for recovery so the Town can be most effective in providing assistance to local businesses with any acquired aid.

Please look over the questions first before you begin.   Thank you for sharing your thoughts and for helping the Town of Middleborough understand your experience as a small business owner as we look for ways to assist you during this time and through the recovery period. 

Town of Middleborough, Office of Economic and Community Development.
