It will stream on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube.

The COVID-19 federal resource guide is available on Rep. Levin’s website at mikelevin.house.gov/covid-19.

See below for Rep. Levin’s introductory note to his constituents as part of the resource guide:

As we confront the COVID-19 pandemic together, I know many families and small business owners have a lot of questions about their future and how to apply for economic relief.

In Congress, I am prioritizing the needs of taxpayers and working families who need health care and economic support. I have worked with my colleagues to pass the bipartisan Families First Coronavirus Response Act and Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which provides trillions of dollars in relief. I am now working to ensure that the Administration quickly and responsibly implements the important programs included in these bills, such as direct payments to families, funding for small businesses, expanded unemployment insurance, and federally funded sick leave.

My staff and I prepared the following resource guide for residents of California’s 49th Congressional District in order to provide basic information about important COVID-19 response programs and to answer frequently asked questions.

My office is also working to provide up-to-date information and resources, and to help constituents in need. You can reach us by visiting my website https://mikelevin.house.gov or by calling (760) 599-5000, and we will work to assist you.

Finally, I want to encourage everyone to remain calm and follow all stay-at-home orders. We will get through this crisis, together.
