Umpqua Economic Development Partnership receives information from all government channels daily - sometimes hourly. As the lead economic development organization for Douglas County, we feel it’s important to make all of this information available to our community and our businesses. The information being released is changing rapidly and will continue to be fast-paced. We're looking to build our communication pipeline as we prepare for much more to come.
On Monday, March 16 our staff began teleworking and we continue to work remotely. The best way to reach us at this time is by email.

All resource emails we've sent are included on this page.
