HEROES Act Passes!

During conversations concerning the House-passed HEROES Act in May 2020 and after, the Campaign advocated for a trauma-informed response to the pandemic. Thank you to the Campaign network for being so effective in your advocacy–we believe that you all have contributed meaningfully to several provisions referencing trauma and a trauma-informed approach being included!

We also appreciate your continued advocacy for CARES Act dollars to be spent in states to develop and/or bolster trauma-informed programs, with the greatest opportunity currently being in the education system due to the more than $3 billion allocated to states through the Governor’s Emergency Education Relief Fund.

As always, the Campaign Core Team remains available to support you in your advocacy efforts and welcomes you to send any questions or thoughts that may arise our way!
