The Responding to COVID-19 webinar series presents COVID-19 pandemic resources for small units of general local government (UGLGs). Specifically, the webinars provide digestible information on how small UGLGs may access public funding, data, and other resources made available due to the pandemic.

The webinar series consists of a total of six sessions spread across three topic areas: housing, health, and economic development. Each topic area consists of two webinar sessions.

The first housing webinar session focused on:

  • An introduction of the topic
  • How jurisdictions can use the additional Community Development Block Grant - Coronavirus (CDBG-CV) funds to support their efforts
  • How jurisdictions can formulate a housing strategy that is responsive to changing community needs, priorities, and funding opportunities

Based on participant feedback in this session, the second housing webinar delved deeper into specific topics.

  • Understand the breadth of relevant and accessible resources available to assist small UGLGs in the ongoing work of support, stabilization, and recovery for their community's housing needs
  • Provide small UGLGs with enough information so they can take that knowledge and turn it into implementable actions
  • Connect to tools and resources available for support, stabilization, and recovery

Who Should Attend?
