FORT MYERS, Fla. -Blue green algae is putting local businesses in the red.

And now the state is asking entrepreneurs to take a special survey.

The survey could help people get some badly needed emergency money.

This link is sponsored by the Florida department of Economic Opportunity.

If people are interested in applying for a loan they can go to this website.

If they meet the criteria, they could get up to a $25,000 bridge loan.
