Resource: White House Fact Sheet on COVID-19 Resources for Low-Income People

Share this page

People with disabilities and their families experience poverty at higher rates than the general population, so we encourage our members to share this White House fact sheet on financial assistance resources with their networks. This fact sheet could also be relevant to Direct Support Professionals, who often rely on the safety net because of low Medicaid wage reimbursement rates set by state legislatures as part of the state-federal Medicaid partnership. The fact sheet covers the following topics:

  • Stimulus payments
  • Health care resources
  • Food assistance resources
  • Child care tax credits
  • Rent assistance
  • Unemployment insurance
  • The COVID-19 Vaccine Finder site
