Main Line COVID-19 Recovery Resources

Resources to Help Your Business & Community

The Main Line Chamber of Commerce is responding to the COVID-19 health and economic crisis on multiple fronts and in unprecedented ways. The Chamber team is dedicated to serving the community, working with government, supporting nonprofits and particularly members – as well as bringing people together to do business and influence the future.

“We firmly believe in working on two fronts: doing all we can to help today while working toward recovery and a brighter future for our region’s companies and employees,” says Bernard Dagenais, President & CEO of The Main Line Chamber of Commerce. This resources page in many cases reflects content shared regularly through the Chamber’s COVID-19 Recovery Resources e-newsletter, which is produced several times each week.
