SANTA BARBARA COUNTY, Calif. - The County of Santa Barbara launched a new section dedicated to COVID-19 Economic Recovery on their website ReadySBC.org on Thursday.

“I understand how very difficult this economic time is for local businesses and employees," said Gregg Hart, Chair of the Santa Barbara County Board of Supervisors. "The County of Santa Barbara wants everyone to get the most up to date information about the financial assistance that is available now. The County’s Workforce Development Board is working hard to help our local business community and employees access the many resources that can help us financially get through the COVID-19 pandemic.”
The site is divided by information for businesses and individuals. It includes immediate steps those in need can take as well as job opportunities.
“During this unique crisis, the Workforce Community of business, labor, job-seekers and government must work together to rebound and stabilize our economy,” said Raymond McDonald, Executive Director of the Santa Barbara Workforce Development Board.
