Millions of Americans are infected with the coronavirus, hundreds of thousands have died leaving behind loved ones, millions are unemployed and experiencing financial hardship that is likely to get worse as the pandemic continues. State and local governments are also projecting significant budget shortfalls that will mean layoffs and shortages of services at a time when folks will need them most.
The U.S. House of Representatives has created the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act to provide funding for state and local governments and additional funds to individuals.
Why is this important?
Please contact your members of Congress and ask them to take steps to help the American people manage during the next stage of the pandemic, and to help them survive the crisis.
