Watch Now

With the passage of the American Rescue Act, jurisdictions have new funds to get out the door to vulnerable populations in need. Technical solutions exist to distribute those funds quickly and efficiently, while providing sustainable tech infrastructure to bring jurisdictions into the future. 

Join Government Technology and Theresa Ward, Unqork Partner and former Deputy County Executive/Commissioner for Economic Development & Planning for Suffolk County, N.Y., on May 10 at 10:00am PT/1:00pm ET as we explore how state and local government agencies can be empowered to efficiently manage federal funds from the $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan to support vulnerable populations and ensure they aren’t left behind.

We’ll also discuss:

  • How a turnkey solution, leveraging no-code technology, can help government organizations disseminate aid in multiple jurisdictions
  • How to rapidly stand up new ARP-supported programs ranging from human services referrals and case management, to child welfare programs, integrated eligibility and benefits coordination.
