Federal Advocacy: Aid to America’s Hometowns Left Out of Senate Proposal


The Senate released proposal for the next coronavirus relief package, is the HEALS Act. This version does not include additional funds for state and local governments. Our communities cannot recover without additional federal support and flexibility is not enough. We cannot let another federal legislative package reach the President’s desk without providing aid directly to cities, towns, townships and boroughs, where it will make the greatest difference for America’s recovery.

There is still time to negotiate but we need YOU to call your Senators and tell them that the direct aid to all local governments MUST be part of any emergency assistance package. The future of America’s 19,000 hometowns depends on it.
