April 10, 2020 – Regional Economic Supports UPDATE April 10, 2020 Businesses – please take a few minutes to do the survey contained in this update.
April 8, 2020 – As you know, SouthGrow is part of a regional economic recovery taskforce with our partners at Economic Development Lethbridge. This initiative will be rolling out more and more support and recovery programs as time goes on. However, I wanted to make sure you have available what we have produced so far so that you can leverage our work to support your own people today.
Here’s a few things to help you today to answer questions from your businesses and people and to plug into your own websites.
1. There is a support hotline live and ready to accept calls from your people who need help finding supports or any other questions that they need to ask. 1-587-800-3356 People can also email [email protected] for support.
2. SouthGrow has published a quick reference page to help you find access supports for your people in as simple a fashion as possible.
You can link to it here: https://www.southgrow.com/recovery
3. The Taskforce has a growing library of information at https://business.chooselethbridge.ca/recovery. Eventually this website will have new features and tools available. Stay tuned.
4. There is now a Facebook Forum up and online where people can post questions and share information related to the crisis.
As you all know, the situation is evolving daily. I will do my best to keep you updated of changes as they occur. Please use these resources and feel free to suggest improvements or additions based on the feedback you get.
As always, call. Feedback is welcomed as we build this plane in the air.
