COVID-19 is causing financial hardship for many. We’re here to help.

For many Washingtonians who were recently laid off, had hours reduced, or took unpaid leave, the financial implications of COVID-19 have been serious and immediate. Added to that is the uncertainty about how long this public health crisis, and its related financial burdens, will continue to impact our community. 

Northwest Consumer Law Center is here to help those financially impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak.
