NASW has issued an Action Alert asking social workers to immediately contact their senators to demand passage of a bipartisan $908-billion COVID-19 aid package, which may be voted on in the next week.

With hunger and long-term joblessness increasing, and unemployment benefits and the eviction moratorium expiring by the end of this month, Congress must act now, NASW says. The bipartisan proposal offers $300 per week in Pandemic Unemployment Compensation, rental assistance, nutrition aid, and monies for education and state/local services, but more funding is needed.
