Urgent Updates


What’s the latest from NLC related to encouraging congressional action on the next stimulus bill?


The National League of Cities sent the following today (August 6):


“State and Local Relief NOW!


Today, raise your voice on social media for direct coronavirus relief to America's communities. The "Big Seven," the group of nonpartisan associations representing all levels of state and local government, are coming together to host a day of social action. The long-term costs and economic damage of this crisis will be far greater if we fail to act decisively and support our nation's cities, states, counties and other local governments.


Use #stateandlocalrelief and #citiesareessential on Twitter or NLC's template tweet to urge your Members of Congress to provide aid to local governments in order to protect Americans now and lay the groundwork for the country to thrive again.


Additionally, NLC has prepared a customizable social media toolkit to support your advocacy efforts - today and everyday until a federal relief package is passed!


Congress cannot go home without providing relief to local governments.”
