Conduit Street Podcast Corner:
On the latest episode of the Conduit Street Podcast, Kevin Kinnally, Drew Jabin, and Michael Sanderson discuss why an unprecedented number of COVID-19-related unemployment claims are putting tremendous pressure on all levels of government, what Congress has done (or neglected to do) to ease the burden on state and local governments, and explain why a technical fix is necessary to protect non-profits and local governments from being overwhelmed by huge invoices from the State of Maryland.

Corporate Partner Corner

MACo's Gold Corporate Partner, CareFirst , is teaming up with Baltimore Health Corps to recruit, train, and employ more than 300 residents who are unemployed due to COVID-19.

The Baltimore Health Corps will recruit, train, and employ more than 300 residents who are currently jobless due to the pandemic to serve as contact tracers, care coordinators, and Community Health Workers. Health Corps staff will be deployed to address critical COVID-19 needs in Baltimore’s most vulnerable communities, performing three key functions: public health education outreach, contact tracing, and care coordination and social support.

Health Corps staff will be well-positioned for careers as certified community health workers at program conclusion, even if they have no previous experience in public health.

In addition, the Mayor’s Office of Employment Development will provide career navigation, legal support, and mental health support to ensure staff are placed with employers and can overcome any long-term barriers to employment.
