Introduction:

The National Partnership for New Americans (NPNA) is proud of the work that member organizations across the country have done in response to the COVID-19 pandemic, which is disproportionately impacting people of color, including immigrants and refugees. NPNA serves as a convener for members across the country to share resources and models, aid in workforce development, and played a key role in advocating & disseminating information on the Payment Protection Program (PPP).

NPNA is a lead partner with the Cook County Recovery Initiative, a rapid response initiative to provide equitable and holistic comprehensive financial relief and critical support services to help suburban Cook County residents and small businesses rebound stronger than ever from the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Below, you will find reports, events, and resources that can aid communities and community organizations tackle some of the socioeconomic challenges that have been exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
