2021 NACo Fall Board of Directors Meeting and Large Urban County Caucus Symposium

2021 NACo Fall Board of Directors Meeting and Large Urban County Caucus Symposium
COVID-19 Intergovernmental Affairs Director, The White House  
 

Over the past year, NACo has helped to achieve numerous county legislative priorities including the passage of the American Rescue Plan Act, which provided $65.1 billion in direct funding for counties of all sizes, as well as the Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act, which represents a significant victory for counties, who own and operate 44 percent of public roads and 38 percent of bridges. During the Large Urban County Caucus (LUCC) Business Meeting, LUCC members will hear about these developments as well as a COVID-19 update from our White House and federal partners, as well as NACo staff.

On any given night, more than 580,000 people in America experience homelessness, with millions more on the cusp. The pandemic has only exacerbated the homelessness and housing affordability crisis. Counties invest significantly in housing and community development and play an important role in addressing the needs of people experiencing homelessness. Hear from an expert panel of national and county leaders on key resources and solutions for counties to combat homelessness and housing instability.

Counties have been considering responses to the social unrest evident throughout 2020 and 2021, as well as the inequities exposed and emphasized by the COVID-19 pandemic. Several counties have established diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI) offices, but many others are still exploring the best way to proceed. Hear from counties about the quick wins and the hard truths of DEI efforts, and from experienced leaders on ways to move toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive governance.

Preterm birth and low birth weight are common causes of infant mortality in the  United States. While there is no definitive approach for preventing these causes, counties can play a major role in reducing infant mortality rates through systemic change and local strategies. Mothers’ health, environment and experiences affect how infants develop prenatally through their infancy. Join us for a discussion on strategies urban counties can deploy to improve outcomes for mothers and infants.

In March, American Rescue Plan Act was signed into law, which established the $350 billion Coronavirus State and Local Fiscal Recovery Fund. The legislation provided $61.5 billion in direct, flexible funding to counties of all sizes. Now that the U.S. Treasury has begun administering the dollars, county leaders are deciding how to best invest these critical dollars responsibly and equitably to ensure the recovery of both our residents, communities and national economy. This session will examine eligible uses of Recovery Funds and steps local leaders can take when developing and implementing plans. Session participants will also have the opportunity to meet in small groups and discuss county investments of Fiscal Recovery Funds.
