ACT NOW: NLC Launches “Cities Are Essential” Campaign
After over two months of no direct federal aid to most of America's communities on the frontline of the COVID-19 response, local governments are saying enough is enough—Cities need direct support and economic relief now!
That is why NLC has launched the Cities Are Essential campaign, to uplift the stories of our communities and residents and receive aid where it can make the biggest difference. NLC is asking for at least $500 billion over two years for local governments, to help us respond, recover and reopen. NLC has put together some critical resources and tools to combat myths, get your message out and connect with federal partners in Washington. America's municipalities are essential, and we prove it every day. Act now!
In addition, GMA is also urging city officials to reach out to federal leaders. Access more information and the GMA letter template. Contact Becky Taylor for more information and assistance.
