On July 20, 2022, the NEFCO General Policy Board approved the Economic Recovery and Resiliency (ER&R) Plan. NEFCO received a CARES Act recovery assistance grant in July 2020 from the U.S. Economic Development Administration (EDA) to work with communities and organizations in Portage, Stark, Summit, and Wayne Counties to develop a comprehensive economic recovery and resiliency plan, including both short-term recovery projects and long-term resilience strategies; identify grants and funding resources for projects; provide additional technical assistance with grant applications; serve as a liaison between communities and the EDA; increase outreach and public information on recovery and resilience efforts; and foster and develop collaborative partnerships in the NEFCO region. The final ER&R Plan includes short-term recovery and long-term resiliency strategies to help the region respond to the impacts of the pandemic.
