Santa Monica’s Local Economy

A Plan for Economic Recovery

On April 28, the City of Santa Monica launched a COVID-19 Economic Recovery Task Force to lead the City government’s economic recovery planning efforts in the wake of the coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19). The Task Force is joined by a group of experts from a wide range of local industries, government leaders, community-based partners and policymakers. Together these leaders and community members will provide critical insights to help the City Council to balance a robust health response with a strategic economic response that addresses the unique challenges presented by COVID-19.

Santa Monica cares about our businesses, our workers, and our entire community as we work together during this major public health and economic crisis.  This is a rapidly evolving situation and things are changing daily, and we are committed to helping you.
