Local COVID-19 Resources

My legislative office recently sent out a mailing to District 3 residents. However, I know that we've not touched everyone we had hoped with that mailing and resource information. Listed below is a brief synopsis of the most requested resources. If you don't see the help you need, please call my office at 402-471-2627 or email me at cblood@leg.ne.gov and we will be happy to find you the help you may need for your family or business in a timely manner.
