Hurricane Florence Business Recovery Info

 

On Sept. 18, President Trump declared a state of disaster for eight South Carolina counties--Horry, Georgetown, Marion, Dillon, Chesterfield, Marlboro, Darlington, Williamsburg.

Our staff has compiled a list of resources for businesses to contact for recovery assistance.  We will update these links as new or updated information becomes available.

Our Chamber stands ready to assist in getting SC businesses back on their feet as soon as possible. Please let us know if we can be of help to you in any way.

Sincerely,

Ted Pitts

President & CEO

SC Chamber of Commerce
