Happy Earth Day! Today we celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Looking for some activities for your kids? Here are some suggestions to educate and promote Earth Day.

Just a reminder, today is the deadline for Social Security recipients, survivors and disability insurance beneficiaries with dependent children, who did not file tax returns in 2018 or 2019, to apply to receive the $500 per child stimulus payment (in addition to the up to $1200 individual payment). You will need to immediately go to IRS and visit the Non-Filers: Enter Payment Info Here section to provide necessary information. If action is not taken promptly, you will have to wait until you file 2020 tax returns to obtain the $500 payment per eligible child. For more information, please read the new press release from Social Security Commissioner Andrew Saul. Also, you can find more detailed information about the economic stimulus payment at www.lasclev.org/coronavirus

Legal Aid has also launched a new Worker Information Line answer questions about employment benefits, worker rights, and unemployment compensation. Callers are invited to leave a short message including their name and number, and you will get a call back within 24-48 business hours. Call 216-861-5899 in Cuyahoga County. They are also helping tenants maintain housing throughout the pandemic. Clients who meet certain criteria may be eligible for help and should apply by calling 1-888-817-3777 or online at www.lasclev.org/contact. Additionally, you can view Frequently Asked Questions related to COVID-19. 

The Home Repair Resource Center is performing its housing counseling services remotely for mortgage/foreclosure delinquency, rental assistance, utility service resources, home repair referrals and assistance, and financial coaching and planning.    

Monday, Governor DeWine announced that Ohio’s K-12 classrooms will remain closed through the remainder of this school year. The governor said the move is necessary to both slow the spread of the new virus and to give schools time to figure out how to best protect vulnerable students.

Parents looking for some great social distancing ideas that the whole family can enjoy should check out Northeast Ohio Parent. Also, check out https://www.northeastohioparent.com/blogger/12-cures-for-the-quarantine-crazies.
