Due to the North Carolina Governor’s declaration of a public health emergency, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and Prevention’s Interim Guidance for COVID-19, travel restrictions and social distancing measures in place, the Defense Alliance of North Carolina (DANC) has cancelled all meetings, events and forums scheduled through April 24.
The DANC staff, Executive Board and members of the Management Council will continue to monitor the situation using the website and social media as a means for communication.
Governor Roy Cooper has requested a disaster declaration from the U.S. Small Business Administration for business owners in the state who face economic loss due to COVID-19. If granted, the declaration would provide disaster loans to impacted businesses to help fulfill financial obligations and operating expenses including accounts payable, payroll, and more.
