Letter to Congress to Urge Including Emergency Assistance Funding in Coronavirus Response

On March 12, the Opportunity Starts at Home (OSAH) campaign sent a letter to Majority Leader McConnell, Minority Leader Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, and Minority Leader McCarthy urging them to include emergency assistance funding to help prevent housing instability and homelessness as a result of the coronavirus outbreak.  This letter was sent to congressional leadership as they are considering a legislative spending package aimed at addressing the impact of the coronavirus.  The letter was signed by nearly 50 leading national organizations including Children’s HealthWatch from the campaign’s multi-sector Steering Committee and Roundtable.
