COVID-19 Update

We continue to update our COVID-19 page with national and local links to useful and credible resources. We recently added additional pages so that information can more easily be found unde the following subtopics:

Map Feature

Our Services Directory now features a map so that users can easily identify resources within a desired geographical area. The map will load for both key term searches or category searches within the directory.

My List Bulk Actions

Within My Lists, users can now use bulk actions to delete, copy, and share more than one list at a time. The bulk copy feature also allows you to merge multiple lists into a single list.
Sign-in to your account or register to test out these new My Lists features. Remember to select your state from the dropdown menu at the top of the screen and set it as your home site for the most personalized viewing experience. My Lists can help you organize and maintain personalized lists of resource providers which can be share via printing or URL links.
