Organizations provided job and employment support to people who experienced job loss, a reduction in hours, were at increased risk due to health concerns or faced an increase in barriers to employment as a result of the pandemic. They were asked to provide resources for programs targeting employment services for most severely COVID-19 impacted communities.
