Mitigation and Prevention

This series of case studies examines nine communities (in Kansas, Texas, Wisconsin, Alabama, New Mexico, Washington, Michigan, Florida, and New York) to understand the impacts of COVID-19 on community members and local mitigation efforts. The case studies offer examples of lessons learned from these nine communities related to health, economic response, in-person schooling, and affordable housing. Practices that were shown to be successful in these communities include using operational equity plan to allocate resources, engaging community members in decision making, and building cross-sector relationships between businesses, government, and non-profits for increased collaboration and information sharing.
