Every week, we share a weekly round-up of resources to help support you and your community.
SMALL BUSINESS SURVIVAL GUIDE
U.S Small Business Administration developed a Small Business Survival Guide to help businesses navigate through COVID-19 changes and restrictions. You can find step-by-step instructions on applying for a disaster loan or information on business insurance.
File your taxes free online through United Way’s MyFreeTaxes program. MyFreeTaxes.org is operated by United Ways of California, on behalf of and in partnership with local United Way members. If you made less than $66,000 in 2020, you qualify for free in-person, drop-off, or virtually assisted filing.
STUDENTS ELIGIBLE FOR SNAP
Due to the COVID-19 emergency, a change in federal law has made more students temporarily eligible for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). The new temporary exemptions will be in effect until 30 days after the COVID-19 public health emergency if lifted.
SCHOOLS REOPENING MAPS
California for All Plan has provided an online locator to find your school district, charter schools, and private schools current reopening and Safety Plan submission status and current funding. The map breaks down schools that are distant learning, in a hybrid model, or in-person.
