Los Angeles Controller Releases Data Map, Info Hub on COVID-19 Resources

LOS ANGELES (CNS) - Los Angeles Controller Ron Galperin today unveiled a COVID-19 Resource Hub website that gathers the latest federal, state and local data and information on services for people to get through the pandemic.

The hub includes a dashboard illustrating the effects of the coronavirus on Los Angeles neighborhoods, including cases and deaths recorded, along with a map showing how stimulus dollars will be distributed by community.

Information on food access, financial support, testing and medical treatment, education, utilities and internet, city services, legal assistance and arts and culture are also provided.

“There is a lot of information out there to help people navigate their way through the COVID-19 pandemic, but it can be difficult to find everything you need in one easily accessible location,” Galperin said.

The COVID-19 Resource Hub offers features such as:

-- a COVID-19 Dashboard, which is updated daily using Los Angeles County Department of Public Health data, so people can see and search infection numbers by neighborhood, track the number of deaths over time and see the effects on residents by age and ethnicity;

-- an interactive map showing where federal dollars will go in the city, including a breakdown of how many people in each Los Angeles ZIP code will get full or partial stimulus checks and who is getting money for children. For example, Galperin said, 93.4% of Wilmington residents who filed tax returns likely will get a stimulus check with the full $1,200 amount, compared to 60.9% in Studio City; and

-- 16 categories of federal, state and local resources to help residents and businesses, including assistance for employees and job seekers, artists and freelancers, small businesses and nonprofits, as well as resources for seniors, renters, homeowners and immigrants.

The COVID-19 Resource Hub is located at lacontroller.org/covid19resourcehub.
