Personal, Financial and Business Resources During COVID

I have some links and phone numbers for various personal, financial and business resources for you. If I missed anything, please add them in the comments!

Food Stamps/SNAP: Contact your local Department of Health & Human Services Division to apply for food stamp benefits

LIHEAP aka Low Income Home Energy Assistance Program: You typically get this benefit from your local Department of Health & Human Services Division as well. They will pay your AC/Heat bill.

WIC aka Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants, and Children: Look up your local WIC Office to apply. I'm not sure if the age cut off is the same in every state, but I know in AZ it is 5 years old.

National Suicide Prevention Lifeline: 1-800-273-8255

National Domestic Abuse Hotline: 1-800-799-SAFE (7233)

LGBT Hotline: 1-888-843-4564

Trans Life Hotline: 877-565-8860

Elder Abuse Hotline: (800) 222-8000

ECHO aka Emergency Children's Help Organization: I couldn't find a national website, but most state specific sites seem to be echo and then the state abbreviation after that (Ex. They help with rent, utility bills, medical bills and more. I personally have had to use them in the past and they are wonderful.

Misc charities: This website has a hodgepodge of resources broken down by category. Some examples: Churches that will help with bills, shelters, food banks, soup kitchens, etc. There is about 20 pages of resources and website links. Also contact your church or a church near you as they typically always offer some time of financial help, food baskets, etc. You typically do not have to be a member if you need assistance.

Comcast/Xfinity: Free Wifi, hotspot, Unlimited data for all, no late fees/disconnections and more, current and new customers! Not only helpful for those that are now working for home, but for our kiddos that are now in virtual classes!

Uber Eats & Grubhub are waiving delivery fees and the fees that the restaurants have to pay to participate in their service.

Target: The first hour your local store is open on Wednesday's is to vulnerable guests, including the elderly and those with underlying health concerns. Their pharmacy's (CVS) is now offering RX delivery

AT&T: Data overage and late fee waivers

T-Mobile: New plans starting at $15 with unlimited talk/text and 2GB data (This is just a quote of the $15 plan)

Sprint: Everyone will have unlimited data for 60 days, free 20 GB of hot spot and free calls to other countries to connect with your families oversea. New subscribers will have waived activation fees and phones will be shipped out next day.

Opportunity Fund: Loans, grants and other resources for entrepreneurs

Small Business Majority: daily updates/webinars, seems to be a California website, but the webinars cover topics that apply to everyone.

Zenefits: This article has a hodgepodge of resources broken down by state

Facebook: FB is rolling out a small-business grant program that will help over 30,000 small businesses. Sign up to be updated once you can apply.

Small Business Administration: Apply for loans and grants that the government approved last week. One that is available is up to $10k that you should receive within three business days of approval.

S.C.O.R.E.: This is a mentor/mentee business resource in all states that also has countless other types of business resources, free webinars, etc. But, it certainly does not hurt to speak with someone in your state who is a seasoned small-business owner about any topic you'd like.
