ABOUT KENT COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT
Kent County Economic Development serves the local business community. Kent County promptly set up a web page for coronavirus updates, which included a section for ‘Business Resources.’ This section included links to state, federal, local, and private resources to assist businesses through the challenges that COVID-19 brought.
