Enterprise’s Detroit team has compiled local Covid-19 tools and resources for low-income housing and service providers, nonprofits and residents. Our national Covid-19 response page is updated regularly with resources on the CARES Act, state and federal policy advocacy, Covid-19 data analysis and resources.
We recommend registering for our webinar on Tuesday, May 5 at 2 p.m. ET: How Affordable Housing and Nonprofit Service Providers Can Help Low-Wage Earners during Covid-19 and Beyond. You can also access pre-recorded webinars on the CARES Act in the Federal Policy and Advocacy section on our Covid-19 response page.
