Care Resource Coordination

The Care Resource Coordination is a program for people who have been impacted by COVID-19 and need support. A Care Resource Coordinator can connect people with resources, such as food, childcare, or shelter. This program can also support those who are experiencing long-term impacts of COVID-19, called Long COVID.   


Do you need support following a COVID-19 infection?

If you or someone you know has been impacted by COVID-19, is actively sick with COVID-19, or is suffering from Long COVID, help is available at no cost for those that qualify. Your local Care Resource Coordinator can help identify local resources for support.  

A Local Approach to COVID-19 Support  

This program operates on a local level. Care Resource Coordination is managed by the Virginia Department of Health, local health departments, and their partners. Local health departments  may offer a network of community-based partners who connect people to services they are eligible for, such as medication delivery, health care, help applying for unemployment, local housing agencies, food banks, childcare providers, and more. Help is given based on need and local program availability. 

Care Resource Coordination supports COVID-19 care needs by connecting people with resources. This makes it possible for people to stay home if they are sick with COVID-19 and, for those with Long COVID, to get the care they need. A local Care Resource Coordinator helps people apply for local resources or services they might be eligible for.  

The Care Resource Coordinator can also connect people to longer-term local services to support ongoing health and social needs. Additionally, Care Resource Coordination can provide the information people need in their preferred language.
