Private, civic and public sector leaders established the Southland Development Authority (SDA) to drive inclusive economic transformation across the Southland through facilitating broad cross-sector collaboration; developing mutually reinforcing strategic investments in the business, housing, workforce, and neighborhoods; and providing new institutional and financial implementation capacity. The extensive economic development programming that is underway will be needed more than ever to help come out of the current economic crisis. At the same time, the SDA and its partners are particularly well suited to – and the crisis demands that they – immediately focus on collaboratively developing and delivering programs to address the urgent needs of residents and businesses impacted by the pandemic. Extensive resources are being made available at the federal, state, and local levels, but the outreach, infrastructure, and technical assistance necessary to assure that they reach the people and businesses who need them most is not in place.
