Dear Business Leaders:

As our state and our businesses grapple with the COVID 19 and its aftermath, we need data from the business community to inform our response. We are asking that you reply to this survey from the Regional Leadership Council so we can have the most complete, comprehensive information possible. To make sure this data is timely, please respond by April 10.

Thank you very much and stay well.

Economic Impact Survey

UW Oshkosh Customized Research & Services will be releasing a series of surveys to help the state assess the economic impact of damages caused by COVID-19. The results you provide will aid in program development and future recovery efforts, as this COVID-19 pandemic plays out across Wisconsin.

In working with WEDC, UW Oshkosh Center for Customized Research & Services, and the New North, KCEDC is asking you to take this survey by April 10.

We thank UW-Oshkosh Center for Customized Research & Services for their survey technology and staff support. The results will be available at the county, region, and state levels, thus providing us an opportunity to compare Kewaunee County to our peers. You will note this survey tool is dated and stamped with Observation Period #1. After your survey completion, you will get a second survey stamped Observation Period #2 the week of May 3rd directly from UW-Oshkosh Center for Customized Research & Services, in which the questions may be altered slightly. We realize that with an overlap of membership, you may get the survey from more than one organization. You only need to complete this survey once per observation period. Duplicates will be screened as part of the intake process. While there are a lot of unknowns during this time it is the intention that there will be a couple more observation period surveys through the tail end of the pandemic.

We are hoping to get as many businesses as possible to participate, as the more participants the better our survey results. and the more leverage we will have in influencing future legislation and programs designed to assist our businesses and our communities to ensure the assistance being provided meets your needs. Therefore, we are asking you to share this with your fellow business owners that may not be on our mailing list so that we can get a great response rate to this survey. Thank you in advance for taking the time to participate. Please do not hesitate to contact me should you have any questions;, or (920) 255-1661.


In response to the rapidly evolving public health emergency of COVID-19 (Coronavirus), KCEDC has compiled a list of resources. We hope these resources will be of assistance to you as you navigate these turbulent times and the operation of your business. As we learn of additional resources, we will add them to this page, and send email blasts to our contact lists. Please encourage members of your team and other interested people to sign up for these KCEDC newsletters here and to check this page often for updates.
