HdL has created temporary online payment portals for many clients. As public counters are closed, jurisdictions need ways to take payments online for activities which typically occurred at the counter. This can be miscellaneous payments needed for finance, building, police, or other department activities. HdL can provide a pop-up online payments site to support receipt of these payments, as a temporary measure to keep these activities moving.
The HdL ECONSolutions team has been assisting some of our clients by creating “COVID-19 Business Information” webpages to share valuable information to their small businesses regarding updates on the COVID-19 pandemic, links to other government agencies and resources for access to capital (e.g. SBA loans and grants, EDD insurance claims and microloans). Additionally the team has also created an “Open for Business” webpage for some cities to list essential businesses (grocery stores, drug stores and restaurants) that are open during the shelter in place period.
Other COVID-19 Resources:
