Coronavirus Resources

Small business owners are resilient and can power through this challenging time, with SCORE Fairfield County by their side. The success of your small business is important to us. We have compiled the latest business guidance, assistance, and resources to help your small business adapt and succeed.

In-Person Events Are Suspended; Online Support Is Available

The health of small business owners, their employees and our network of volunteers is our top priority. Effective immediately, all SCORE chapters across the country have suspended in-person events, including mentoring sessions and workshops, until further notice.

SCORE Fairfield County is committed to providing you the best service we can during this time. We will update you when in-person events resume, and when new resources and guidance become available.

Mentors are available to participate in remote mentoring sessions via phone, email and video. If you already have a SCORE mentor, ask them if you can use a remote mentoring method for your sessions. If you don’t already have a mentor, you can find a business mentor today.
