Available COVID-19 Resources



Recent events surrounding the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19) have indeed created economic uncertainty for our nation. However, our organization stands ready to help our region’s businesses and our allies weather this storm.

NESA staff will continue to deliver the high quality services our counties and member organizations have come to expect during this time. With this in mind our offices will remain open, though we are currently limiting the number of staff physically present in observance of social distancing protocol as advised by local, state and federal government entities. Our staff remains available to assist you as we would during normal operations by phone or email.

As this situation continues to evolve you can rest assured that NESA will be here as a resource to assist our business partners and existing employers in an effort to strengthen our region’s economy. We have been through challenges as a region before and together we will meet these new challenges head on and be a stronger community because of it.

To ensure you are aware of resources currently available to businesses, we have created this webpage. We encourage you to check these resources regularly as more information becomes available.

NESA remains your partner in the continued growth of northeastern South Carolina and the further prosperity and well-being of our friends and neighbors. We will continue to Put Success in Your Corner.
