Letter: Urging Congress to Direct More COVID-19 Testing into Underserved Communities

Poligon has joined 120+ organizations in signing a letter urging lawmakers to direct more COVID-19 testing into under served communities. Congress must increase COVID-19 testing nationwide to address the needs of our most vulnerable communities being hit hardest by the COVID-19 pandemic.

We urge leaders in Congress to make resources available to meet those who are most in need where they are, including allocating funding and creating incentives for:

  • Community health centers, hospitals, and nonprofit organizations in minority, low-income, and underserved communities to bring testing to those who wouldn’t otherwise have access
  • These organizations to use local infrastructure, community health workers and others in their workforce,and distribution channels to increase testing in these communities
  • Mobile testing units
