Building an infrastructure of care for West Virginia families: What Congress can do to help now

For too long, the economy hasn’t worked for too many West Virginia families who struggle between finding and keeping work, paying for rent and bills, and caring for kids, older relatives, and family members with disabilities. And the COVID-19 pandemic has only made matters worse.

Things can and should be better. Already, benefits such as the expanded Child Tax Credit will help families stay afloat and create jobs in West Virginia. And we now have a golden opportunity in Congress to establish an ‘infrastructure of care’ - one that ensures people have the resources they need to care for their families, keep a roof over their heads, and sustainably return to work.

Join us and a panel of West Virginia experts for a free webinar telling you what you need to know about these once-in-a-generation proposals in Congress, how they will help West Virginia families specifically, and what you can do to help.

Even if you can’t attend, sign up to get a recording and a list of follow-up resources.

COVID-19 cases are down and more people are working. But all is not well in America. As of June 7, less than 1/4 of Black Americans had received a first COVID-19 shot, according to available federal data. This comes even as evidence is surfacing that in recent months, the proportion of people contracting COVID-19 or dying from it increasingly is Black.
