Resources for Workers​

Resources for Workers

Our community is in desperate need of support as many have lost their jobs or are forced to risk their health as essential workers and most are left out from the economic assistance programs provided by the state and federal governments. For this reason, we have collected a list of resources that may help members during this difficult time. 

For city-specific resources, see these pages: Austin, Dallas, Houston

This list of resources includes many programs that are independent from Workers Defense Project, and we cannot influence or control whether someone receives assistance from an outside group.
