COVID-19 Impact

The COVID pandemic had many impacts on DEED programs. Some individuals were hesitant or unable to seek employment, independent living or other agency services due to the health risks associated with COVID-19. Most agency facilities were closed to in-person service. And, schools and other agencies DEED partners with for service delivery were also closed. As a result, the number of customers served by some DEED programs during 2020-2021 saw decreases in participation. As we’ve moved farther from the height of the pandemic, we are starting to see service numbers return to pre-pandemic levels.
