Join the Economic Policy Institute (EPI) for a bipartisan economists’ panel on the urgent need for substantial state and local aid as part of the next coronavirus relief package.
As counties work to protect their residents, local businesses, and economies from the detrimental effects of the COVID-19 pandemic, they are making significant financial investments to address immediate public health and safety needs. At the same time, counties are experiencing massive and unprecedented declines in revenue as a result of the economic downturn. Join EPI for their discussion with economists on the need for federal aid to state and local governments.
