Community Economic Resilience

Welcome to CCEDA’s Cortes COVID-19 economic response page. This is a temporary access point for resources and contacts, and will be updated as more information becomes available. For general discussion of Cortes CV-19 response, including economics, visit the Resilient Cortes forum. A directory of local resources is at CortesHelps.com, and there is also a special COVID-19 section on Tideline.

For information about how we plan to help islanders access government financial supports, or if you have time, skills, or resources to share, please contact CCEDA.
