Response to COVID-19

The ACEDC and our partners understand that many businesses are feeling the economic implications of COVID-19 and may need assistance in navigating through financial challenges caused by the COVID-19 Pandemic. In response, the Athens County Economic Development Council works to ensure that area businesses are informed of the beneficial programs that are available to help area businesses navigate these financial challenges.

The ACEDC has been in frequent communication with other local, state, and regional economic development entities regarding this matter and will update this document as new assistance programs and resources become available.
