Letter: Urging Congress to Prioritize the Vulnerable Communities in the Next COVID-19 Relief Package

Poligon and members of the Interreligious Working Group on Domestic Human Needs (DHN) sent a letter to Congress urging them to protect the most vulnerable communities in the next COVID-19 relief package by enacting the following policy priorities.

  1. ​Expand and increase SNAP  
  2. Allocate more money for housing, homeless assistance, and extend the moratorium on evictions
  3. Extend expanded unemployment assistance
  4. Expand the EITC and Child Tax Credit 
  5. Authorize Another Economic Impact Payment 
  6. Authorize Pandemic TANF


We urge Congress to include these priorities in the upcoming COVID-19 package and demonstrate their commitment to addressing systemic poverty and racial disparities.
