The American Public Works Association (APWA) is closely following the spread of COVID-19 and its effects on both the public and the public works community. To help the Public Works community during this time, it has developed a "Coronavirus and the Public Works Community" resource webpage.
The webpage information and links broken down into three categories: Resources, News, and Share Your Experience. The Resources section provides you with links to health organizations, federal agencies, APWA's partner organizations, and other public works-specific websites. In the News section, you can find the latest updates on federal actions for COVID-19 emergency funds and links to the latest editions of the APWA Washington Report for additional federal legislation and guidelines. The Share Your Experience section of the page provides you with links to APWA's Public Works COVID-19 Discussion Board where you can connect with others in the public works community to share your experiences and best practices and a link to the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) survey where you can let the federal government know how to better assist you and your community. Canadian members can find Canadian-specific resources and updates on the CPWA website.
The webpage also includes links to APWA's updated educational offerings. Many have staff working remotely and are taking advantage of this time to continue their professional development. APWA is providing complimentary access to the Members’ Library and live Click, Listen & Learn webinars to all public works professionals — members and non-members — through May 25. It is also offering a 20% discount on all of our e-Courses during this time.
