Webinar: The COVID-19 Layoff Housing Gap @ Online
Apr 22 @ 2:00 pm – 3:00 pm

COVID-19-related unemployment could cause a massive housing crisis in Massachusetts. 468,000 Massachusetts residents filed unemployment claims in the first three weeks of the COVID crisis.

Who has been laid off? How many are now at risk of eviction or foreclosure? Will CARES Act assistance help? What about those who don’t qualify for federal aid? Join MAPC staff for a virtual discussion of our research brief, “The COVID-19 Layoff Housing Gap.”

On April 21, MAPC is releasing an update to “The COVID-19 Layoff Housing Gap” with the latest unemployment data.

At this webinar on April 22, MAPC Data Services Director Tim Reardon and Socioeconomic Analyst II Sarah Philbrick will discuss the updated data–and what it means for workers, municipalities, and the Commonwealth.

Webinar: Pool Testing for COVID-19 @ Zoom Conference
Dec 14 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Learn more about COVID-19 pool testing efforts underway in the region!
What is pool testing?
“Pool testing”—batching samples together and retesting individually if a result is positive—is a way for municipalities and schools to work together to provide regular, frequent, and cost-effective COVID-19 testing.
In this webinar, we’ll learn about the pool testing program led by Tufts University and the cities of Somerville and Medford; and hear about local pool testing programs in Salem and Wellesley.
Speakers will share more about how they started their pool testing efforts, lessons learned, and what you should know if you’re interested in setting up a pool testing program.
