Please join us as a cosponsor of H.R. 6592, the Coronavirus Relief for States Act, to provide critical resources to states to help them deal with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Presently, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases are over 2,732,000 across the world and over 869,000 in the United States. While we do not yet know the full impact COVID-19 will have on the nation, already more Americans have been killed by the virus than

and organize the government to counter terrorist threats. It is clear that we, as a nation, are at another inflection point. Americans today will again demand a full accounting of our level of preparedness and response to this global public health emergency.

Representatives Kennedy, Matsui, Tonko, and Katko along with Senators Warren, Markey, and Murphy invite you to join a letter to leadership requesting $38.5 billion for behavioral health providers in the next COVID-19 package. COVID-19 has had a major impact

the time to further reduce it, which will only intensify the limited access to behavioral health services.

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic is disproportionately affecting communities of color – including Latino, African American, and Asian American communities – who already face exacerbated risk factors for health inequities. This unprecedented public health
crisis underscores the health disparities and racial inequities that have existed in the U.S. health care system for many years. Most importantly, it points to the need to implement a comprehensive and strategic plan to improve the health and well-being of
communities of color through a health equity perspective, which the Health Equity Accountability Act (HEAA) puts forth.
