Economic Development Tactical Guides

HomeResourcesEconomic Development Tactical Guides

The COVID-19 crisis has created massive challenges for cities. Given the unique nature and magnitude of this crisis and resource constraints, many local economic development teams lack tools to adequately respond and drive economic recovery. The aim of the Economic Development Tactical Guides is to help local economic development leaders rapidly develop and deliver impactful programming.

In April 2020, Bloomberg Associates launched the Economic Response and Recovery Program to help cities rapidly and effectively respond to the economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis and work towards recovery.

As part of this work, we developed tactical guides to help local economic development leaders accelerate the development and deployment of impactful projects. These straightforward, how-to guides provide cities with a concise set of recommended actions backed by practical case studies, step-by-step actions, and plug-and-play tools to accelerate implementation. They were as relevant during the first months of the pandemic as they are today.
