Response and Recovery Tools for Local Leaders

Cities, towns and villages were the first to respond to the Coronavirus pandemic. Local elected officials are distinctly positioned to protect the health and safety of America’s residents and to provide reassurance in times of crisis. Utilize created and curated tools and resources to support local virus response efforts!

Local leaders are on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic. Explore NLC generated tools and best practices, federal guidance, resources from the state municipal leagues and partners, and other critical information to help with local preparedness and response.  

NLC launched the Cities Are Essential campaign in May 2020, calling on the federal government to ensure there is flexible, direct funding relief provided to America’s municipalities.
