In partnership with the Chamber of Commerce, the city of New Braunfels has created a Business Impact Survey with the goal of gathering data about the anticipated economic impact on local businesses in connection with the coronavirus pandemic. The survey will close on Wednesday, April 15.

Local business owners are encouraged to complete the anonymous survey on the city’s website. Data collected from the survey will help inform decisions and potential policies to address local impacts.


“The businesses most affected by the coronavirus’ economic impacts comprise almost one-third of our local businesses and employees,” Jeff Jewell, the city’s Economic and Community Development Director said in a press release. “Understanding these impacts will help us understand what the needs are and create more targeted solutions.”

The city has also developed an online Business Resource Center to help local businesses access federal funding and other relief resources.
