COVID-19 and the Financial Impact on Disability: 
How can you help?

National Disability Institute (NDI) understands the current and long-term impact that COVID-19 will have on the financial and personal health of people with disabilities and chronic health conditions, their families and communities. 
In response to these needs, NDI created the Financial Resilience Center (FRC). The FRC answers frequently asked questions about COVID-19 Economic Impact Payments; Employment and Unemployment; Public Benefits; Housing, Food, and Healthcare; Money Management; Scams; and more. Additionally, the FRC offers referrals for virtual financial counseling through AFCPE, and an online financial wellness training from LifeCents. These resources are all offered at no cost!


You can help us spread the word about these resources by visiting the FRC and utilizing our Outreach Toolkit
