#FocusOnKids Initiative Highlights Need for Housing Resources in Next COVID-19 Relief Package

Children’s Defense Fund, First Focus Campaign for Children, and Coalition on Human Needs recently launched two weeks of action called #FocusOnKids, urging Congress to pass a new COVID-19 relief package that includes significant investments in the vital supports that children and families need. The two-week period runs from July 13 to 24.  On Tuesday, July 21, in partnership with NLIHC and the Opportunity Starts at Home multisector affordable homes campaign, #FocusonKids will hold a housing tweetstorm from 1-2 pm ET to support NLIHC’s Virtual Lobby Day (held on the same day). These efforts will help raise further awareness in other sectors about the need for robust housing resources and protections in the next COVID-19 relief package.

In addition to participating in NLIHC’s Virtual Lobby Day on July 21, please join the #FocusonKids tweetstorms and help uplift urgent needs for children during this time.
