COVID-19 (A Community Development Response)
Information and Resources Hub
A variety of Community Development Organizations (CDOs) and local units of government are looking for ways to manage through and build resilience during these challenging times. That's why Prosperity Indiana is providing an information and resources hub for its members. We've designed the hub to answer questions, glean ideas, and share resources such as sample policies and procedures, etc. Please check regularly for updated information.
If you're willing to share COVID-19 or other emergency response policies, resources, and ideas with peers or ask questions, please email us.
