As the global pandemic continues to affect communities around the world, recent access to the COVID-19 vaccine has provided a much-needed glimmer of hope for a return to normalcy.

As the COVID-19 crisis and its economic effects continue to unfold, it has become clear that communities need to understand the job-related exposure and financial instability their residents risk to more effectively direct resources and support.

The health risk and risk to earnings scores, assigned by TIP, form the basis for the Occupational Risk Tool.
