We know many Connecticut businesses are struggling as they deal with the effects of COVID-19. We appreciate their perseverance and know they share our commitment to keeping our residents healthy. The state, working with its federal partners, has several programs and initiatives in place to assist businesses during this difficult period. For specific questions related to small business, email the Joint Information Center at COVID19.JIC@ct.gov, or call the DECD small business hotline at 860-500-2333. Individuals can call 2-1-1 for more information.



Each year in Connecticut, traveler spending drives $15.5 billion in business sales, generates $959 million in state/local tax revenues, and directly supports over 84,000 jobs. But sharing the natural beauty, cultural richness and diverse experiences of Connecticut is more than a numbers game. In fact, we consider the businesses and attractions that make up the Connecticut tourism industry — such as hotels, restaurants, museums, parks and more — as our partners in working to share with the world just what makes our state so great.
