COVID-19 Rapid Response Grant
Four jobs and $150,000.00 estimated annual wages were saved during COVID. This grant enabled Habitat to set up technology to allow shelter-in-place work during a 3-month shutdown of the Habitat offices, thereby avoiding layoffs of personnel. Additionally, as the office has begun resuming more normal operations, the assets purchased have allowed Habitat to start a work-from-home rotation of several office staff. This has also increased the confidence that Habitat is minimizing opportunities for transmission/infection from COVID.
