The National League of Cities and Bloomberg Philanthropies have teamed up to collect and share actions taken by local leaders in response to the COVID-19 Pandemic.

The scale of this global crisis is unprecedented, and so is the scope of the local government response. These extraordinary efforts will have far-reaching implications to public health, municipal services, and local economies that we are only beginning to comprehend. Our goal is to ensure mayors, city leaders, and other local decision makers have the information they need to lead their communities through this crisis.

We aim to highlight and uplift the efforts of local leaders. In the coming weeks, we will be developing a more robust mechanism for local government leaders to share actions enacted in their own communities. In the meantime, we ask that you submit your actions by clicking the button below. By working together, we can take steps to ensure the health and safety of residents across the nation.
