In the continuing effort to keep the local health department response front and center, NACCHO sent a letter yesterday to House and Senate leaders detailing support that local health departments need to keep the COVID-19 response going, including “substantial additional investments to the governmental public health system at all levels (federal, state, local, tribal and territorial), as well as at least $3 billion in funding designated specifically for local health departments so that they can continue to lead on the response in the short term, as well as over the long-term response and through recovery.” Please take action to send emails directly to your Members of Congress amplifying the NACCHO requests.
