So many of us have seen firsthand the resilience of Mississippians following times of crisis. Today, we face another challenge as the devastating economic impacts of the Coronavirus begin to take their toll. The Mississippi 30 Day Fund is another installment in this state’s ability to weather challenging times and will provide a vital source of support for our state’s small businesses.

Former Governor Haley Barbour

The COVID-19 crisis has been severely detrimental to our small business community. Honest, hardworking Mississippians need our help. The Mississippi 30 Day Fund is an exemplary effort to get our small businesses up and running again.

Former Governor Phil Bryant

In times as difficult as these, Mississippians have always come together, regardless of what may have divided them previously. The 30 Day Fund is but another example of the compassion we Mississippians have for one another. Minorities have been disproportionately impacted by both the health and economic aspects of this pandemic, and I am proud to support this effort which recognizes and will address these disproportionate impacts.

Former Governor Ray Mabus

The Mississippi 30 Day Fund represents the fabric of this state’s character: Mississippians helping Mississippians. Our economy is fueled by the small business community, and these entrepreneurs offer a great deal of culture and community to this state. I am honored to be a part of such a crucial cause as we navigate this crisis together.

Former Governor Ronnie Musgrove
