The Missouri Department of Economic Development (DED) has asked REDI help them reach out to area employers to ask about how COVID-19 is affecting their businesses. DED will use this data to analyze business needs, and allow them to consider implementing changes to existing programs, or develop additional resources to assist Missouri businesses impacted by COVID-19. A questionnaire is posted at https://www.columbiaredi.com/wp-content/uploads/2020/03/DED-COVID-19-Questions.pdf. DED would like to have input by Friday, March 20. Completed forms can be emailed directly to Michelle Hataway at DED at Michelle.Hataway@ded.mo.gov
