Protecting Your Financial Health During COVID-19

As you’re protecting your physical health during this time, it’s important to protect your financial health, too. We know that COVID-19 is already causing great financial hardship as people and their family members face business shut-downs, unemployment and medical bills. Even if your finances are stable, this is a time to be extra vigilant about saving money and protecting the security of your accounts. 

Here we’re offering a list of financial tips and resources for individuals and small businesses. We welcome suggestions, and we’ll add more as they become available.

Resources for Individuals

Resources for Small Business

  • Check out SBA resources: The SBA's COVID-19 Small Business Guidance page includes lots of resources, including information on government contracts, assistance with exports, access to capital and more.
  • Contact your insurance provider: Contact your insurance agent to determine whether your policy provides coverage for the impact to your business.
  • Contact your lenders and landlords: Contact your lenders and landlords to discuss the options they may be able to offer. Self-Help is working with our borrowers to offer relief options, and many other financial institutions are doing the same.
  • Check out online resources: The Center for the Advancement of Social Entrepreneurship (CASE) at Duke's Fuqua School of Business has created a searchable website with info on grants, loans and more around the world. See and search the site here:

Stay Informed

As the situation evolves, make sure you are getting information from reliable sources, like the CDC or your state's department of health.
