Adams County COMMUNITY COVID-19 Response and Recovery

Adams County Community COVID-19 Response and Recovery is the collective effort of cross-sector partners who are working together to ensure policies, funding, programs, and practices are aligned to support those who are most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. These cross-sector partners are supported by a neutral Backbone Team to follow an outcomes focused approach that is driven by data.

Although emergency management is a core function of local and state government, school districts, public health departments, and others, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the opportunity arose for a cohesive response across the community.

As a leader within the Rocky Mountain Partnership, leadership from Adams County Government advocated to utilize RMP’s framework to provide a space where cross-sector stakeholders and the community at large could come together with entities responsible for emergency management to respond in the most cohesive and collective way possible around seven key areas. The intention of this effort is to support the Adams County community to overcome challenges posed by the pandemic in a way that does not duplicate or replace existing strategies or efforts underway by the County Government or other entities within the larger community, but rather to fill gaps and align resources.

The cross-sector stakeholders and community at large have come together with entities responsible for emergency management to respond in the most cohesive and collective way possible around seven key areas:

  1. Child Care
  2. Business Support and Retention
  3. Aging Services
  4. Uninsured and Healthcare Access
  5. Housing Stability
  6. Food Security and Basic Essentials
  7. Support for the Unemployed and Future Workforce
