Mortgages, CARES Act, Tenants, Virtual Yoga, Volunteering [Weekend Reading]

Cure some of that cabin fever and stay up to date about your community:

1. In the Coronavirus Economy, the Only Safe Mortgage Is a Government-Backed One

"Mortgages that carry a guarantee aren’t extended by the government. Rather, they are extended by private lenders, pooled together and sold to investors through Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac or Ginnie Mae."

2. Loans for small business affected by coronavirus made available through the CARES Act
Applications start today!

3. Rent payments, evictions upended during coronavirus outbreak
“Step one, call your landlord, see if you can negotiate something. Step two, reach out to different community organizations. In Longmont that means — or in Boulder County in general — that’s the OUR Center or Sister Carmen or … Emergency Family Assistance." 

4. Boulder-based virtual yoga, meditation and workouts thriving in the wake of coronavirus
"Today, all one needs to keep up an exercise routine and a spiritual practice is a strong Wi-Fi connection and an even stronger desire to not fall victim to the couch during these slow-paced days of solitude and snacking."

5. Broomfield library staff 3D printing face shields for local health care professionals
