COVID-19 Impact Survey

Every Idaho family has felt the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic. United Ways across Idaho have created a survey to assess how the COVID-9 pandemic has impacted Idaho families. The purpose of the survey is to help determine the best ways to assist Idaho families and communities as we work together to recover from the COVID-19 health and economic crisis.

The United Ways are asking for as many families as possible to complete this survey – doing so only takes 5 minutes. The deadline to complete the survey is Friday, July 10th.

Here’s the link to the survey:

Please feel free to pass it on and take a few minutes yourself to complete the survey. We want to hear from as many Idaho families as possible.
