City of Cedar Rapids Business Storm Loss Questionnaire

August 27, 2020

In response to the business impacts of the August 10, 2020 derecho throughout the community, the City of Cedar Rapids is asking area businesses to complete a brief storm loss questionnaire. The questionnaire is designed to help City staff identify needs in the post-disaster recovery process. Business owners and managers can complete the questionnaire now or in the weeks ahead as information becomes available.

Business interruption has been widespread, with companies dealing with many different kinds of tangible impact such as structural damage, lost inventory, production shutdowns, missed income, temporary closure and payroll reductions, and more. The City’s Economic Development Division would like to hear the story about what types of storm losses and challenges had an impact on local business establishment or operation.

“Because of the uniqueness of the recent storm event, we created this questionnaire to help measure the baseline economic effects of storm related business losses,” said Jasmine Almoayyed, Cedar Rapids Economic Development Manager. “Obtaining the best available information about business impacts will support successful post-disaster economic recovery of the Cedar Rapids community.” 

Businesses are asked to complete the survey here by 5:00 p.m. September 30, 2020.

Economic development services staff are available for questions at EDServices@cedar-rapids.org
