This guide aims to assist workforce professionals quickly and accurately locate emergency and long-term resources for workforce program customers to gain economic stability. It includes information on rental assistance, supports for utilities and broadband, childcare, the child tax credit, earned income tax credit, nutrition and food security, health care resources, and legal aid among others. Additional information on supportive services is also available on the Department of Labor’s technical assistance platform for workforce practitioners, at Workforce GPS. Traditionally, workforce development practitioners are aware of, and know how to access supportive services. This resource guide advances that list of available resources, and includes emergency and long-term services, and those born out of newly identified needs exposed during the pandemic. This quick and easy guide is not an exhaustive list of available resources but an immediate active list of current programs from the Federal or State level to serve immediate needs.
