This webpage notes that as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to spread and people are forced to stay home, workers are losing their jobs, health care systems are being stressed, local businesses are at risk of closing permanently, and the country is bracing for recession. It highlights the role of the Urban Institute in equipping changemakers with the facts and insights they need to accelerate solutions. The webpage then provides links to resources on the impact of COVID-19 in the areas of child care and education, equity and inclusion, fiscal and economic policy, health and health policy, housing policy, small business and community development, State and localities, workers, and work supports, and basic needs. Resources include information on policies, practices, and resources for child care and early education providers amid the COVID-19 crisis, how the CARES Act will provide support during the pandemic, stabilizing supports for children and families during the pandemic, strategies for reducing risks and burdens for accessing public assistance during COVID-19, and how programs addressing homelessness can prepare for COVID-19.
