SCVEDC Offers Resources to Help Your Company Navigate the Coronavirus Crisis

by | Mar 25, 2020 | Community

The Santa Clarita Valley has had more than its fair share of challenges in recent months, and the current COVID-19 pandemic is certainly one of them. But despite it all, our tight-knit community has a reputation for stepping up and taking care of each other. From folks offering to run errands for elderly or sick neighbors to businesses finding creative solutions in the face of seemingly insurmountable obstacles, I am in awe of how our community responds to difficult situations.
The Santa Clarita Valley Economic Development Corporation (SCVEDC) is committed to providing you with information and resources to help your company navigate the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. We are working to provide resources and information to keep jobs and businesses going, as well as protect the community. Information is changing rapidly so SCVEDC created a coronavirus page on our website to help businesses stay up to date. Updates are being made to this page daily. We ask readers to rely on official sources first and foremost, but we will repost some of that information on the page in addition to other recommended steps. Visit scvedc.org/coronavirus for more information.
Here are some resources featured on the page to help you or your company during this challenging time:
