The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic understandably changed the way we carried out our daily lives in Todd County and throughout our nation. All of us faced many challenges and found new opportunities in our lives. We launched our year at Todd County Development Corporation with aspirations of celebrating 30 years of economic and community development at our Annual Dinner on April 6th. In early March, the COVID-19 pandemic changed everything from elimination of social gatherings, how and where we performed our work and lived everyday life.
Todd County Development Corporation recognized changes needed to be made in the way services were delivered in 2020. In person contact changed to communication through electronic devices. Small Business Development Center clients were served by telephone, email and sometimes adding ZOOM in the mix. Businesses seeking state and federal disaster relief were provided technical services to help with online applications.
Todd County Development Corporation provided coordination and processing of more than $1.3 million dollars of Federal CARES Act county grants to qualified businesses and non-profits who were affected by the Covid-19 pandemic and state closures. During this time, we continued to provide our long-established economic development services to our communities and businesses.
Our thanks go out to everyone who helped our communities get through the COVID-19 pandemic and assisted us to grow and improve the services we offer in critical situations. Together, we carry on our mission to promote and sustain diverse economic and community development through education, training and technical assistance that improves the quality of life for the citizens of Todd County.
On behalf of our TCDC Chair, Board of Directors, Todd County Commissioner Representatives, RLF Committee and Executive Director, we would like to thank you for your support, leadership and guidance.
