The Nebraska Children and Families Foundation worked with its community partners and State and local governmental agencies to establish playbooks to help synthesize the emergent needs of Nebraskans during the COVID-19 pandemic. Playbooks serve as summaries of individual and community needs relating to the COVID-19 pandemic and were developed in the areas of food security, healthcare, mental and behavioral health, childcare, connectivity, housing, vulnerable populations, and older youth. This summary focuses on needs related to connectivity. Information is provided on key concerns and solutions being implemented or proposed to address: Internet access, phone access, device access, barriers that exist for people to access necessary services, workforce capacity related barriers to serve people impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and barriers around serving specific populations. Unique needs and disparities from different counties are also listed.
