COVID-19 Pandemic: An Ongoing List of Resources

During this unsettling and uncertain time for our world, Equality NC will keep you as updated as possible on community resources as they become available.

We've closed our physical offices until further notice but will continue our work and events in an online capacity. All of our chapter meetings have moved online, and you can find information about how to participate on our Facebook

If you do not have internet access at home or unable to maintain it, there are several options available through providers:

  • Comcast Home Essentials is a low-cost home internet package for individuals and households, is now available for free for the first two months.
  • Access from AT&T is a low-cost home internet package for qualifying individuals and households (no special for COVID-19 but still available at a low cost).
  • Spectrum broadband and Wi-Fi access will be available to households with K-12 and/or college students who do not already have a Spectrum broadband subscription. Currently, this promotion is scheduled to last for 60 days after March 16. To enroll, call 1-844-488-8395. Installation fees will be waived for new student households.
