Cities Are Essential – Federal funds for ALL cities
The National League of Cities (NLC) launched the Cities Are Essential campaign to fight on behalf of our nation’s residents to secure direct funding for COVID-19 relief to cities of all sizes. Members of Congress, the Administration, and others in Washington, D.C. must understand that cities and towns are essential in the COVID-19 response, recovery, and reopen efforts.

We need you to get involved! Send a letter to your Congressmember, make noise on social media, and write an Op-Ed. We need to partner together to help America bounce back. NLC has put together some critical resources and tools to help you bust myths, get your message out, and connect with your federal partners in Washington. Now is the time to fight! America's municipalities are essential, and we prove it every day.

Take action now!
