OUR EXPERTS SERVE AS FORCE MULTIPLIERS IN SEDGWICK COUNTY’S COVID-19 RESPONSE

Case Studies Oct 27 2020

The COVID-19 pandemic has magnified revenue uncertainty for county governments as staff, equipment, and funds have had to be quickly redirected to infection containment. While programs like the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act Coronavirus Relief Fund (CRF) represent a significant remedy for resource-strapped local governments, many counties lack the capacity to stand up and run new grant programs and shoulder the administrative burden that federal funding programs present.

The Solution: Witt O’Brien’s helped the county devise a comprehensive community assessment and Notice of Funding Opportunity to prioritize the needs of local governments and public and private sector entities including churches, school systems and social service agencies. We leveraged its communications expertise to help the county communicate program eligibility to the community, which reduced the number of rejected programs.
