Other Local Resources 

If you are a student, check your school's website or the school district's website (or Twitter accounts) for all the updated information. Most school districts have already listed the local sites that are providing both breakfast and lunch. Please do note that most of these lunches will be to-go. Your guidance counselor can also be a resource to information and services.  Information about classes, activities and/or fees will be made as the schools learn more. 

Local businesses or restaurants may be offering help to those in need. Check out their social pages, like Instagram or Facebook, and local Facebook groups and Community Based Organizations to find out more information.

In Google, search "City of [name of the city you live in] coronavirus" or COVID-19 in place of coronavirus. Most cities have created a comprehensive list of resources for their residents.

You may have heard the the word moratorium in the news. Some cities have passed a moratorium on evictions (being kicked out of your home for not being able to pay rent). This means that the city will prohibit or halt evictions for a certain amount of time. To see if your city has passed a “moratorium” on evictions, include this word in your search.
