Fund the Front Lines Day of Action Tomorrow!

Participate in AFSCME’s Day of Action 

Thursday, February 4th by calling your Ohio House and Senate representatives and urge them to pass the American Rescue Plan.

Lawmakers face a March 14 deadline if they want to provide additional aid before the COVID support extended in December 2020 runs out.

The American Rescue Plan calls for $1.9 trillion in relief, including:

  • $350 billion in critical state and local fiscal relief in addition to targeted funding to help defeat the coronavirus including through support for vaccines, testing and public health programs.  
  • $170 billion to help K-12 schools safely re-open and $40 billion for childcare. 
  • An extension of Unemployment Insurance (UI) programs through September 2021 with a $400/week federal enhancement and an additional round of individual relief of $1,400 per-person and per-child direct payments. 
  • $160 billion in pandemic aid for vaccines, testing and contact tracing.
  • Relief funds for the millions of Americans struggling to make rent and mortgage payments, as well as those experiencing homelessness.  
  • $20 billion for transit agencies deeply impacted by the pandemic 

Without this relief package, we won’t be able to keep nurses, teachers, EMS, custodians, childcare providers and so many more on the job keeping our communities safe due to budget shortfalls caused by the pandemic. Without this relief package we will be unable to help the millions of American families struggling to put food on the table and keep a roof over their heads.

Call your senators today and tell them we need to pass the American Rescue Plan.
