  Resources to Help During the Coronavirus Pandemic

Dear friend,

I want to help you and your family access the information and resources you need during this public health crisis. I have resources on my website that can provide answers on how to receive student loan forbearance, apply for unemployment benefits, and more.

Though times are tough, I know we will forge through this together. Our community is strong and is already working together and helping others in times of need. I will continue fighting for legislation that puts workers first, makes COVID-19 treatment accessible and affordable, provides support that can sustain our economy, and ensures that state, local and tribal officials can access the resources they need to protect our communities.

I, along with my offices are following guidance from public health officials to keep others safe and prevent the spread of the coronavirus. My D.C. and district office staff are working remotely and are still working for you. If you need assistance, please leave a message at (414) 297-1140, as my staff checks messages regularly.

Your friend,

Gwen
