Economic and Social Sustainability Planning

"Just as we focus on keeping our community members safe from the threat of COVID-19 and ensuring we are 'flattening the curve' to make sure our capacity to keep people safe is the highest, we are at the same time working to keep our economy and our community's social fabric strong throughout and beyond the crisis." - Mayor Michael R. Brown

Mayor Brown, the Grand Forks City Council, and partners from around the community have already begun listening sessions (below) and strategic coordination with federal, state and regional partners to develop a comprehensive and ongoing action plan to keep Grand Forks' small businesses, nonprofits, and service organizations in a position to maintain their roles and capacity.

Strategies, action steps and programs will be added here as they become available. 

City Hosting Series of Business Listening Sessions

While there are many unknowns in this time of rapid change, local leaders know that area businesses and their employees are facing unprecedented challenges.  The City of Grand Forks and local economic partners will hold a series of listening sessions to gather information from the business community on what those challenges are and to hear your ideas for solutions and needed support.  We will share these ideas with our state and federal partners, as they have requested, to guide them as they develop and package resources to deal with the COVID-19 crisis. And with your help, we’ll shape our local approach to economic recovery.
