COVID-19 has turned our members’ lives and day-to-day operations upside down. The American Rescue Plan provides funding to aid our members in paying for significant unplanned expenses and restore operations in this “new normal” we all face.
Many Equalis Group supplier partners provide products and services that align with the objectives of the American Rescue Plan, whether you are reconfiguring your classrooms and offices to meet CDC guidelines, investing in new technology to enable remote operation and service provision requirements, or restarting projects that were delayed due to COVID-19-related interruptions.
Our Member Engagement Team is here to help you navigate where and how our competitively solicited, already procured contracts can most quickly and cost-effectively maximize the value of American Rescue Plan funding your organization receives as we all strive to return to some sense of normalcy.
