A new resource hub launched by the Los Angeles City Controller's office illustrates the citywide impact of coronavirus.
In addition to mapping the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases and deaths across Los Angeles County, the resource hub includes an interactive display showing where federal stimulus funds will be distributed in the city. Other components of the resource hub include information for businesses, artists, employees, non-profit organizations, renters, homeowners, immigrants, and seniors impacted by COVID-19. It also provides links to resources for food access, financial support, COVID-19 testing, medical treatment, utilities, legal assistance, and city services.
The Controller's office previously released a map of food resources available during the COVID-19 emergency.
“There is a lot of information out there to help people navigate their way through the COVID-19 pandemic, but it can be difficult to find everything you need in one easily accessible location,” said Controller Ron Galperin in a news release. “My COVID-19 Resource Hub does that by giving updated data on the number of cases and deaths in each L.A. area neighborhood, mapping how federal stimulus dollars will be distributed locally, and linking hundreds of federal, state, county, city and other resources to Angelenos seeking assistance. As a public servant, I want to do my part to support residents and businesses during this unprecedented crisis.”
