Economic Recovery Task Force

COVID-19 Economic Impact Survey

In April, as COVID-19 was emerging as a public health and economic crisis, we surveyed businesses and organizations on Nantucket about the initial impacts of the pandemic and related challenges.

The survey responses we received helped the Economic Recovery Task Force take quick action to support the island’s economy. 

Today, the pandemic is still with us and the future remains uncertain. As we prepare for the fall and winter, we need your voice more than ever. Please take a few minutes to update us on the impact COVID-19 has had on your business or organization by filling out this SURVEY.

Survey responses will stay confidential and will be shared in summary form only. This survey effort is sponsored by the Town of Nantucket, ReMain Nantucket, the Nantucket Island Chamber of Commerce, and the Community Foundation for Nantucket.

Please submit your survey responses by Wednesday, September 30.


The mission of the Economic Recovery Task Force is to make recommendations to the Select Board on actions the Town can take to support economic recovery efforts of our local businesses.
