LANJDE COVID-19 Resource Center

The COVID-19 Resource Center serves as a platform for all our provider members and business partners to share and access COVID-19 resources, tools, and templates in an effort to better aid our members in their preparation and response to the novel coronavirus. It is also a forum to facilitate conversation and knowledge sharing amongst the LANJDE community.

Are you curious what other LANJDE members are doing to address COVID-19 within their communities?  Want to easily share a best practice from your facility? This is the tool for you!

Contact ebeck@leadingagenjde.org to get set up in the Resource Center.

Operational Waivers

We are working with the HCANJ and NJHA, and have asked state agencies for several operational waivers. Please see more information about operational waivers here.

Emergency Preparedness 

Our Emergency Preparedness Coordinator is sending out updates through Amerilert and is working to secure additional PPE. Please see our Emergency Preparedness COVID-19 resource page.

Resources Specific to Housing Members

Our Housing Consultant Dao Degnan compiles information from HUD and other resources to keep our affordable housing members updated. Please see our Housing Resources for COVID-19 page.

Please let us know if you have any suggestions on additional ways we can serve you and your members.

We are at a critical time in which community containment measures may be increasingly difficult to implement and enforce.  Now is the time to prepare your employes, operations and family.
