Resiliency Checklist

The Resiliency Checklist is designed to help small businesses, nonprofits, and faith-based organizations withstand a crisis.

The checklist helps organizations build their resilience by ensuring they have the tools and resources needed to thrive in the face of the challenges associated with pandemics, natural disasters, and other crises. The tool guides users through a series of questions and then creates a customized “resiliency checklist” for them to complete along with a curated list of resources that will assist with the process.

The Resiliency Checklist was created by The Enterprise Center, in collaboration with the City of Chattanooga and community partners, with open source software so that other cities may replicate the project. Contact us (info below) for more information about bringing the Resiliency Checklist to your community.

Staying prepared

In the wake of the Covid-19 crisis and the tornado that came through the region in the spring, many small businesses and nonprofits were unable to apply for available local, state, and federal aid because they were not prepared with the proper documentation. This new tool should help business owners and nonprofit leaders stay prepared for whenever a crisis might arise.

The toolkit is available in both English and Spanish.
