Smart Growth Recommendations for Recovery Webinar

April 15, 2020 - 1:00 pm to 2:00 pm

Our economy is at a virtual standstill because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Millions of Americans have lost their jobs and healthcare. Businesses of all sizes are facing an existential threat. Local municipal budgets are being gutted. 

With a $2 trillion emergency stabilization package already approved, Congress and the administration will continue developing other economic recovery legislation over the coming weeks and months. They will continue to need to prioritize immediate, emergency steps required to avert economic disaster, and secondly, they need to focus on catalyzing a long-lasting recovery in the wake of this prolonged crisis. But we must invest wisely. We must not squander money investing in a way that fails to provide a foundation for long-term economic growth. Instead, funds must go to investments that build lasting economic prosperity and ultimately help all Americans have the opportunity to live in a place that is healthy, prosperous, and resilient.

We leaned on our experience with the stimulus of 2009 and our long expertise in infrastructure and community development to produce a package of federal policy recommendations Congress should consider to build the foundation for a long-lasting recovery. Join us for a webinar where we'll delve into our recommendations, some of the specific policy proposals, and answer questions.
