In response to the pandemic, Poverty Solutions and our partners developed community education tools to ensure residents and community advocates have up to date information on how to access critical resources to support health and economic stability.
On March 27, 2020, we released the Michigan COVID-19 Pandemic Resource Guide, which provides information on how to access various resources aimed at supporting Michiganders through the coronavirus pandemic and related economic slowdown. The guide has been shared broadly by community organizations, school districts, and the media.

Poverty Solutions partnered with Civilla to create a website to make sure Michiganders received their federal stimulus checks as soon as possible. The site, viewed over 250,000 times and used as a template for other organizations and governments such as the city of Detroit, walks people through a step-by-step process to ensure they have provided the IRS with the information necessary to receive their stimulus checks.
