National COVID-19 Resiliency Network

The National COVID-19 Resiliency Network is part of the U.S. Department of Human and Health Services Office of Minority Health's National Infrastructure for Mitigating the Impact of COVID-19 within Racial and Ethnic Minority Communities (NIMIC).

We welcome all organizations and individuals to join the National COVID-19 Resiliency Network to access COVID-19 resources. Organizations are encouraged to use the resources for their dissemination efforts to communities they work with. Community members are encouraged to share the resources with their families and friends.


Join us in this collaborative effort and stay up-to-date with resources available through the National COVID-19 Resiliency Network.
