COVID Central

COVID Central is designed to provide timely information on P&A/CAP network SPECIFIC responses to the Coronavirus Pandemic. These quick highlights will feature creative interventions and collective concerns as we continue to receive P&A insights. Through these updates, we hope to keep the network informed, inspired and involved during the Coronavirus pandemic.

If your P&A has an effective strategy/suggestion related to monitoring, investigations, representative payee activities or any other approaches implemented by your P&A to protect disability rights in relation to COVID-19, please contact Justine “Justice” Shorter, Disaster Protection Advisor by phone at (202) 880-2435 or by email at justine.shorter@ndrn.org.
