Federal & State Relief Programs Available during COVID-19 Pandemic
Many members and businesses are struggling due to the shutdowns and closures put in place during the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. Government passed the CARES Act on March 27, that allows for direct economic aid to millions of struggling Americans and businesses. There are a multitude of organizations who can offer help during this uncertain time. With such an enormous amount of information to wade through, we thought it would be a good time to pass on a list of some of the resources we have been made aware of that could provide relief to some of those in need in our communities.
Below are several links to documents listing programs and agencies offering assistance. OCEC is providing the information as a courtesy to members. Any questions/inquiries about the assistance available should be directed to the organization who oversees the specific program you are interested in.
