Pinpointing Vulnerability of COVID-19: Real-Time Safety Net Needs to Support Philanthropy’s Response - Shared screen with speaker view
You can see a map of 2-1-1 coverage at https://www.211ca.org/about-2-1-1
The map needs updating, all counties that are not shaded also have disaster response coverage now, with only exceptions being Amador, Tuolumne, Sierra and Plumas
Please share your questions in the chat box at anytime.
12 United Ways operate 2-1-1 programs supporting over 24 counties, and UWs fund almost all other 2-1-1s in the state, too.
Kelly and Pete, you might you mention the Governor promoting 211 on a few things and how that drives calls--including recent food delivery. How you are working to postion 211 as a single point of entry to various sources of support.
We’d be happy to support in any way on the food delivery program…we’ve been funding this work (meal delivery via restaurants) in partnership with World Central Kitchen
Thanks Jose, perhaps email me some info at email@example.com and we’ll link up with the 2-1-1 network

2-1-1 also helps with coordinated entry for housing/homelessness, connections to EITC, health coverage enrollment, counseling and mental health and more.

if you have a question and you want to verbally chime in, feel free to interrupt by sending me text (e.g. "I have a question"). Otherwise, please type your question(s) in the chat box.
are there plans to conduct this analysis for other counties?
If we include all Bay Area counties--Marin, Contra Costa--the numbers necessarily get worse.
Does “basic needs gap” mean lost revenue or earnings to be replaced?
Interesting, can you share more later on the basic needs estimates?
I heard that Gov. Newsom’s fund for undocumented families is being challenged in court so that these funds may not be available anytime soon…is this correct?
Alan Kwok (NCG)
If no one has the answer, we (NCG/Philanthropy CA) can find out that answer.
Do you adjust need for household size and composition (2 adults, toddler, school-aged child) or?
It is being challenged, but unlikely to succeed (the challenge)
Good to see. We have this kind of basic needs cost analysis for households across the state, with downloadable data, at unitedwaysca.org/realcost
We need mortgage moratorium for landlords, otherwise renters will just pile up debt. A pause for everyone.
Nicole so fantastic!
Curious about Nicole's thoughts about how the Governor's Council (The one that includes Angela GB) might take immediate action on some of these issues?
Melissa Stafford Jones
What effective efforts are people seeing or participating in to help connect people to or improve the speed of access to UI and stimulus payments?
RE: My question about: the state policies that should be prioritized to ensure a just recovery.
What can we do to help the undocumented workers?
The CalEITC coalition is pushing for state to make ITINs eligible for CalEITC, retroactively, and the Young Child Tax Credit.
The unbanked population seems to present a significant challenge (fall prey to pay day lenders, slower to receive payment etc.). any thoughts about equitable banking options?
We are working on ways to set up online bank accounts for unbanked undocumented households, so the funding won’t be one-time,
Nicole thanks for the excellent presentation. Alan, thanks for organizing and for allowing United Way and 2-1-1 to provide information to this audience. Larry
Thanks Nicole, Thanks Alan and all!!
