We Are Here To Help

The Washington Literacy Center is currently monitoring key developments related to COVID-19. The health and well-being of our students, customers, employees, and community partners are most important. We understand the concern and uncertainty about this crisis and are committed to being responsive to your needs as the situation evolves and strive to give you the best level of service possible.

Please be advised WLC was notified on Dec. 27 that an employee of a tenant in the building has tested positive for COVID-19.  We understand that the employee was last at the property on December 21, 2021. The employee is not employed by WLC. Property management notified the applicable government agencies and stated that no action was required at this time.  The building is performing additional enhanced cleaning, which they expect to complete shortly. 
In light of this event, WLC has elected to temporarily close the office and have all staff work remotely until further notice. 
WLC, per CDC recommendations, continues to encourage students and TANF/TEP customers who have not been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 and those eligible but have not received the booster to do so promptly.
We will keep you informed about WLC protocols and information concerning COVID.  In the meantime, please continue to be safe, get fully vaccinated, including the booster shot, if you have not done so.

FEMA to Help Pay Funeral Costs for COVID-19-Related Deaths

In early April, FEMA will begin providing financial assistance for funeral expenses incurred after Jan. 20, 2020 for deaths related to coronavirus (COVID-19) to help ease some of the financial stress and burden caused by the pandemic. The policy was finalized this past Wednesday, and FEMA is now moving rapidly to implement this funeral assistance program nationwide.
