WHDC encourages all to stay safe amid the COVID-19 pandemic. Check out this useful guide below from our friend Jose Ortiz, Jr., Executive Director of NYC Employment & Training Coalitions (NYCETC). Another excellent resource is the newsletter from Manhattan Borough President Gale Brewer and other elected officials. We’ve added a few other resources and will continue to make updates as we receive them.

Below you will find Federal, State and Local Government Resources; Day-to-Day Tips; Support and Discussions for Human Services Organizations; and Small Business Support.


Please take a look at the following Federal, State, and Local agencies links provided below. These are the main websites for an overview on COVID-19. They each contain information on the symptoms, prevention, testing, and precautions around travel, as well as other resources, guides, and answers to commonly asked questions.
