A note from the Chairman of the Board of County Commissioners

 

COVID-19 is a major challenge for our entire community affecting our very way of life.  While we are going through a difficult time now, we know there will be brighter days ahead.  We remain focused on how we can better support our residents, businesses, workers, and the community-at-large.

While we have provided many informational resources related to the virus itself, we are now beginning to shift into making sure we have a successful recovery. To do that we are working to get out the best informational resources we can for affected businesses and unemployed workers.

Please use the Economic Recovery Page as a one-stop shop location to easily access the State and Federal Assistance, whether you’re an affected business or unemployed worker.  Besides these links, you will see locally made videos from experts (for business applications) that seek to better help your business navigate these programs.

These sites will continue to evolve as conditions change and as we seek to improve their effectiveness.

We encourage you to utilize these resources and be a part of our successful recovery!!!

Most Sincerely,

Robert A. “Trey” Goodwin III, Chairman

Okaloosa Board of County Commissioners
