As we now know the government shutdown has last for about a month as of now. (currently going back up temporarily) A lot of people was affected by this as some of them were living paycheck to paycheck. I, myself now how it feels to be on that end as I am on a fixed income. I subscribe to a Youtube channel that deals with keeping your credit on track and in some cases, bringing it back from a downward spiral due to unplanned circumstances. I’ve been through this myself and was able to get it back were it needed to be through careful planning and lifestyle choices I made. The video below is dedicated to those specifically affected by the shutdown and may be of some help. So, please take a look to see if anything the guy talks about can help you in any way.
