The financial impact of the pandemic has been devastating to businesses and residents throughout Monmouth County. Freeholder Director Thomas Arnone and the Division of Economic Development initiated efforts to help support businesses of all sizes affected by COVID-19. To ensure the financial needs of Monmouth County residents impacted by the virus are also being met, Freeholder Deputy Director Susan M. Kiley will head-up the County’s financial recovery effort for residents.
“Residents have been hit hard by COVID-19 – from loss of employment and income to food insecurity and more,” said Freeholder Deputy Director Kiley, liaison to the County’s health and human services departments. “We’re also seeing a whole new group of residents who have traditionally been self-sufficient, but now find themselves in need of public resources, guidance and support. The Financial Recovery Initiative (FRI) is designed to help residents on their path to financial recovery – by providing clear, consistent and timely information and easy access to services and resources.”
