CERF Stakeholder Mapping Survey
Are you/your organization interested in being part of a county-wide effort that will support local businesses, create accessible good-paying jobs, and protect our environment in Orange County? If so, we would love to hear from you!
Background: The Community Economic Resilience Fund, or CERF, was created by the State of California to help local regions develop economic development plans. CERF is a new initiative that will support communities in producing regional roadmaps that prioritize creating accessible, good-paying jobs in sustainable industries.
There are two phases to CERF, Phase I/Planning and Phase II/Implementation; we are currently in the Planning Phase. As part of our planning phase, Orange County has formed a CERF High Road Transition Collaborative (HRTC) that is charged with developing a roadmap for a High Road Economy in Orange County. A High Road Economy is one that achieves economic growth, economic equity, shared prosperity, and a clean environment.
CERF goals include creating an economy with:
1. Good-paying jobs and local wealth
2. Diverse industry sectors
3. Community and economic well being
4. Environmentally friendly industries
This survey should take 10-15 minutes to complete and will help Orange County's CERF HRTC complete a comprehensive stakeholder mapping process, which will be used to help the Collaborative better understand who/what organizations and entities could be involved in the planning and/or implementation effort. Based on what we learn through this survey, we will reach out to stakeholders to be involved in the planning and/or implementation phase. If you are involved with or know of active stakeholders in Orange County that can be part of creating a High Road economy and/or benefit from it, please complete the survey below. We are collecting survey responses until May 31, 2023.
