Members of Congress are currently determining their priorities for the next coronavirus relief bill, and negotiations are expected to pick up in the last two weeks of July. Join this webinar hosted by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities to hear where your efforts are needed most to ensure that the next federal COVID-19 bill — which could be the last, according to Senate Majority Leader McConnell — includes important policies such as federal aid to states, cities, and towns; extending unemployment insurance (UI) benefit and eligibility expansions; increasing SNAP benefits, housing assistance, and family tax credits to help people struggling to get by; and creating an emergency fund for states to help people who are falling through the cracks.
Speakers will cover messaging tips and ideas for actions you can take in the next two to three weeks to make the biggest difference.
This webinar is open to any advocate interested in learning more about and engaging on federal COVID-19 priorities, but it is geared specifically toward state-based and local advocates.
The webinar is off the record and not open to members of the media or legislative staff.
