Office of Recovery and Resilience
Working toward a swift, community-wide recovery from COVID-19
As we head into the third year of the pandemic, we must transition from COVID-19 response to medium- and long-term economic and community recovery. Snohomish County Executive Dave Somers established the Office of Recovery & Resilience (ORR) to guide the county’s recovery work by ensuring the $160 million in federal pandemic relief the county received is administered quickly and equitably.

- Youth, family, & senior supports including child care, food assistance, & case navigation
