SPOKANE, Wash. — As the Inland Northwest navigates the COVID-19 pandemic, people are working hard to stay healthy and financially stable. Doing both is challenging, especially in the current economic climate. Jobs are on the line, and payments for bills, housing and food can seem insurmountable.

KREM 2 is working with local partners to provide resources for people looking for help: How to get unemployment, how to get your stimulus checks, where to look for a job, what businesses are open, and what does the financial future look like for our region moving ahead.

We will air special question and answer segments during noon newscasts each week called Your Money, Your Future.
