This For the People encore segment features State Comptroller Natalie Braswell in last January's chat about Connecticut's new Essential Worker COVID-19 Assistance Fund. With eligibility just expanded to the CDC’s 1C list of essential workers - and the application deadline extended - it's time to find out if you can get compensation for a number of virus-related losses and expenses.

Then, we've got a challenge for you veterans - especially if you don't like the direction our country is going. Hear how Veterans for Political Innovation is mobilizing heroes like you to help make our nation's political system less toxic and more competitive by becoming more involved in local and state political action.

And, if you are a nurse or have aspirations to be one, meet the founder of the Susan D. Flynn Oncology Nursing Development Program - who wants you to be one of America's next generation of oncology and palliative care specialists training at no cost across a growing network of prestigious medical centers.
