    • The Community Sector COVID-19 Response Rapid Mapping Project resulted from NTCOSS member requests to identify the capability and capacity of the sector to respond to immediate and future needs of vulnerable Territorians.   As services and workforces are disrupted and the demand on services changed rapidly, NTCOSS working with NOUS Group, coordinated the collection of critical information from community not-for-profit organisations to assist with ongoing coordination and planning.
