Hot Summer Tidbits

"##Here are some of the ways that LeadingAge PA has been assisting our member communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

LeadingAge PA and ECRI offer biweekly updates on coronavirus, available resources, and related state agency coordination. On April 24, 2020, LeadingAge PA, the leading association of nonprofit senior services providers in Pennsylvania, and ECRI, an independent nonprofit organization improving the safety, quality, and cost-effectiveness of care in all health care settings, announced a new alignment aimed at protecting Pennsylvania's older adults during the COVID-19 pandemic. Many of these educational sessions on the LeadingAge PA website are offered at no charge to members.

LeadingAge PA is providing information to members on the availability of **$50 million in grant funding** to help employers provide hazard pay to employees in **life-sustaining occupations** during the COVID-19 pandemic. The grants will offer $1,200 per full-time employee earning less than $20 per hour and employed for the 10-week period from Aug. 16 - Oct. 24, up to 500 employees.
