New Pandemic Response Toolkit Now Available for Providers

    The NY Alliance for Inclusion and Innovation is pleased to be the recipient of a New York Community Trust grant to create a Pandemic Response Toolkit for providers of services to individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities (I/DD) in the New York City region.

    Through this grant the New York NY Alliance will:

    • Develop and distribute educational resources, including best practices in disaster and crisis response and relevant material related to COVID-19.
    • Design a customized Risk Resilience Website to share all resources.
    • Create a customized business continuity plan for participating nonprofit organizations.


    Although the pandemic was the impetus for the creation of the website, the resources are relevant to any disaster preparedness and business continuity planning. There are no fees to participate in the educational series or access resources on the Risk Resilience Resources Website.

    The Risk Resilience Website is now available! Click the register button above to access all resources.

    The website has an array of resources related to pandemic and other disaster preparedness. Resources available now include:

    • MY Business Continuity Plan - A business continuity plan or BCP is a resource that helps leadership teams anticipate their actions in the face of disruptive events.


    • Articles, webinars, and short infographics on a variety of topics related to crisis management.


    The website will be updated frequently as additional resources become available.
