On April 7, 2020, the H.R. 6467 Coronavirus Community Relief Act was introduced by Congressman Joe Neguse and to date has more than 70 cosponsors. This legislation would provide additional funds for cities and towns who have populations under 500,000. This bill is in the early stages and as more information is released the Coalition will provide updates.
