Covid-19 has impacted nearly every area of life for residents. Tamarac has been working to address that impact through various assistance programs, funds, and grants—including repair grants, rental assistance, and utility payments.
Most recently, they are also hoping to address another problem — residents impacted financially who can no longer afford mobile devices and subscriptions.
Through a partnership with T-Mobile, the Connectivity and Technology for Employment Support provides connectivity technology for residents who qualify.
The goal is to help residents search for jobs and employment opportunities by ensuring that not having a cellphone isn’t a barrier. Recipients of the program will receive mobile devices and connections through T-Mobile for two years.
