COVID-19 Resources

During this unprecedented time Economic Development Corporation, Warren County (EDC) wants all of its members, stakeholders and the public at large to know we are working with federal, state and local agencies, officials, financial institutions, and organizations to provide the most up to date information on what potential programs and relief are in place and may be coming in the near future. These programs may be in one of the following areas: low-interest loans, grants, workforce assistance, supply chain availability and more. EDC is keenly aware of the unprecedented nature of these actions and the potential economic impact they will have both in the short-term and beyond.

We would urge everyone to follow the cautionary directives detailed by local officials and the NYS Governor’s Office and we offer EDC’s assistance to public health officials and the healthcare community to bolster efforts in whatever capacity we can over the next several weeks.

EDC supports our local small businesses and services and encourages everyone to do something to help sustain these important local enterprises during this time.

EDC strongly recommends several sites that are a major source of important, updated information as this crisis continues to evolve:
