USDA COVID-19 Resource Guide for Rural Communities
On April 13, 2020, USDA unveiled a one-stop-shop of federal programs that can be used by rural communities, organizations, and individuals impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. The COVID-19 Federal Rural Resource Guide is a first-of-its-kind resource for rural leaders looking for federal funding and partnership opportunities to help address this pandemic. 
ESG Reporting Contact Needed
KHC's Data and Reporting Team set up an automated email system that will notify each ESG-funded agency's designated ESG Report Contact, which will provide the user with instructions for completing the ESG CAPER reporting requirements. It is also important to note, that this person will be the person to receive the submission link and instructions, directly from SAGE for each of their ESG project components. Therefore, the purpose of the ESG Report Contact is to have one person identified to receive the links and submit their ESG CAPER reports directly into SAGE. Each agency should submit the contact information (Name, email, phone number and agency information) to by May 15, 2020; this will give us time to get that person added or updated in our automated system.
