West Virginia Groups Urge Passage of New Federal Relief Package

West Virginia MetroNews – More than a dozen West Virginia groups have signed on to a letter pushing for additional federal COVID relief for families and communities. Read full article.

“Across West Virginia, food and housing insecurity are growing, local governments are facing budget crises that threaten public services, and unemployed workers are struggling to make ends meet as the economic and health crisis rages on,” the groups wrote.

“Despite these challenges, Congress has failed to pass any meaningful COVID relief for families and communities since March, and most of the programs that were passed have since expired with the crisis no less challenging.”

The letter came from groups like The West Virginia Center on Budget and Policy, the National Association of Social Workers West Virginia, American Friends Service Committee West Virginia, West Virginia Citizen Action Group, the West Virginia Education Association, American Federation of Teachers West Virginia and others.
