New COVID-19 Info-Site Launched by BPJCC
Brooklyn, NY—The Boro Park Jewish Community Council has created a new info-site with helpful links to initiatives, grants, and loans that will help ease some of the pressing burden brought on by the repercussions of the rapid spread of the coronavirus.
Of critical import is the link for Job Assistance. There is a short form for those who have lost their job due to COVID-19 to fill out and submit for review.
As jobs become available, the BPJCC Workforce Initiative department will follow up with applicants and share potential jobs.
In the meantime, businesses looking for qualified workers can contact the BPJCC at [email protected]
Additional helpful tabs on the new COIVD-19 info-site are links for small businesses, which include the link to apply for an SBA loan.
There are also financial links, including a link to the Hebrew Free Loan Society, to apply for an interest-free loan of $2,000-$5,000 for those facing financial challenges caused by the coronavirus outbreak.
Additional pages to visit include those for housing assistance, food assistance, mental health help, and even links for first responders and healthcare workers to find assistance.
“These are truly challenging times,” says Avi Greenstein, BPJCC CEO, “but we will get through this by working together. Initiatives like the BPJCC’s COVID-19 Info-site are here to help. It is worth visiting more than once to see what kind of assistance is out there for your particular case.”
The BPJCC will continue to work around the clock on its rapid response system in the upcoming days, as it continues to seek more ways of helping the community both now and during recovery. Community members are urged to check back frequently for updates at www.bpjcc.org as new offers of help and assistance continue to come in daily.
