Public Health Workforce Network

Arkansas State Independent Council (ARSILC) is the recipient of a public health grant, for education, training, and information sharing regarding the after effects of Covid-19. The activities of the grant will enable us to have meaningful conversations with lawmakers, U.S. and state legislators and the public related to the inequities that exist among individuals with disabilities, senior citizens, the LGBTQ community, Latinos and other marginalized groups.

The pandemic has created economic hardships for many families. People have lost their jobs, or their hours are getting cut, or their opportunities are severely limited. Even those who weren’t in poverty before are now finding themselves unable to afford food, health care, prescription medications, or rent because of these new circumstances. Mental health is a huge concern, as well, and substance abuse is rising.
Many low-income workers have no choice but to work outside of the home, risking infection. They are in jobs that can’t be done remotely, and they are more likely to rely on public transportation, as well. These factors are putting already vulnerable people into really trying situations.

If you are one of those individuals who has experienced a trying situation related to COVID, we encourage you to fill out the survey and talk with your congressman about what you are going through.

Together, we can help slow down the after effects of COVID-19.
