The economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic will be felt for many years, and states must initiate plans now to help boost recovery. In this series of six webinars, SREB explored how state leaders can strategically use workforce and education funding to help their state economies bounce back more quickly. 

Each webinar session included recommendations and considerations for policies and programs, strategies for equity and ideas for using multiple funding sources to support efforts. Leaders in states with exemplary initiatives shared how they are using the strategies discussed in their states.
