INDIANAPOLIS – Last week, Mayor Joe Hogsett announced the launch of a new tool on the city’s Indy.gov website that connects individuals, businesses, and families impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic with community resources. The guide, which simplifies information from a variety of different sources, has already helped thousands of residents connect with food and employment services, along with other programming. Since its launch the site has been updated with more than a dozen new tools, assets, and community supports.
“We continue to see organizations step up for their neighbors during this difficult time. With each new addition to the site, it’s my hope that we can reach more Indianapolis residents and address the unique needs caused by this pandemic,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett.
Since the initial launch, the city has rolled out additional pages, new content, and a Spanish language version of the resource guide. New social media assets with information about the city’s recent travel warning advisory and “Stay-At-Home” order can be found on the main page of the site. The Office of the Mayor is committed to real-time updates and the further addition of new information throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.
Indy.Gov/covid is mobile friendly, allowing those who primarily use their smartphone for connectivity to easily access the COVID-19 Resource Guide. Individuals who are unable to navigate the city’s website can call 317-327-4MAC between the hours of 8:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m. to talk to a customer service representative.
