Urgent: CHN April 3 Webinar — Congress and COVID-19: What Passed and What Comes Next. Register Today.


March 30, 2020

Register Now!


A full recording and slides will be sent to all registrants, so register even if you can’t be on during the live presentation.

Learn about the historic $2.3 trillion relief and recovery legislation enacted by Congress, and how it responds to the massive public health and economic crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The legislation enacted so far takes some important steps towards protecting people and shoring up the economy. But it does not do enough, and Congress will have to return to ensure that the people most in need get adequate help. Advocates and service providers nationwide need this information!

Join CHN as we examine the good and the bad of what’s available so far, and the human needs that still must be addressed in a fourth package. We’ll discuss cash assistance, expanded benefits, help for nonprofits, and new programs such as Pandemic Unemployment Assistance. And we’ll let you know how you can take action to call on Congress to take the next steps needed.
