To better inform and keep our region up to date with COVID-19 and CARES Act resources, the LRGVDC developed this webpage designed to provide the latest resources and information available. The LRGVDC's intent is to improve capacity in our region to recover quickly from difficulties from current and forthcoming adversities with grant opportunities and resources to sustain living situations.

Additionally, the LRGVDC will proactively act as a liaison between various governmental levels and stakeholders. Staff will bring together different leaders and stakeholders to formulate best practices and actionable deliverables for sectors most affected by COVID-19 to establish a method of recovering from similar economic disasters.

Please reach out! We are happy to provide any information, resources, or assistance available.
