NLC "Cities are Essential" Campaign Calls for Direct Municipal Aid

Today, the National League of Cities, our federal level partner and the voice of the over 19,000 cities, towns and villages in the United States, launched a campaign to secure economic relief for all communities on the frontline of America’s response to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). The Cities Are Essential campaign calls for $500 billion in direct federal aid and economic relief from the COVID-19 pandemic over the next two years to support all communities who support America’s people.

NLC is coordinating this effort in concert with the National Association of Counties and the US Conference of Mayors. 

The campaign is mobilizing the best of NLC’s research and data, legislative strategy, marketing and communications, and coalition-building efforts to achieve one clear goal: Direct federal support of cities, towns, and villages, regardless of size.
