  • If your business has been damaged in a hurricane, please take the Business Damage Assessment. The information provided in this survey will be shared among various state and local agencies to expedite implementation of appropriate disaster relief programs for businesses. This survey assists the State with determining if relief services for businesses should be activated. The Business Damage Assessment can be found here.

Consumer Alert – Beware of Insurance Scams

  • The East Orlando Chamber of Commerce with the Florida Chamber of Commerce and its Consumer Protection Coalition urge you to be on the lookout for unscrupulous home repair vendors and trial attorneys that try to profit off the disaster by asking you to sign an Assignment of Benefits (AOB). Remember, consumers do not need to sign an AOB to get storm-related repairs. Click here to listen to a special consumer alert.
