County, State and Federal Agencies Helping Flood-impacted River Businesses

County officials are working to bring programs to help businesses get back on their feet. State and Federal officials are still working to determine Federal Disaster status that will unlock FEMA support. 

The Local Assistance Center set up at the Bank of America Building in Guerneville will be open from 9-6 through next weekend – go there for individual advice on programs open for residents, workers, and businesses.
