Getting Back To Work: An Economic Recovery Playbook For North Carolina Cities

  August 3, 2020, 12:00 PM-1:00 PM


North Carolina is home to roughly 500 cities, towns, and villages. The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted all of them to varying degrees, placing enormous economic pressure on families, businesses, and local governments. As we look toward a Carolina Rebound for our entire state, our local communities play a critical role in the recovery. The public policy choices made by local officials over the next few months will either pave the way for the rebound or inadvertently make matters worse. In this conversation, our panel of local elected officials and public policy experts will discuss what comes next to ensure a vibrant recovery grounded in economic opportunity for every person and stability in local finances, housing, transportation and more.
