With everyone's health and well-being remaining top priority, APHSA continues to closely track COVID-19 developments and guidance from public health officials while working in partnership with our local and state members to support them as they prepare for impacts in their community. Based on feedback from our members across the nation over the past few weeks, we submitted a letter to Congress (3/25) providing priority recommendations that are vital to support human services agencies and their partners during this unprecedented time and we will continue to work with Congress in order to delve into more nuanced issues to support the immediate, interim, and long-term needs of communities responding to and recovering from COVID-19.

With respect to our events, all APHSA-sponsored and co-hosted events that were scheduled between now and early May have been postponed. As of now, we are anticipating that most events will be rescheduled for later in the year. And while we continue to plan for our 2020 National Health and Human Services Summit scheduled for June, as well as other APHSA events scheduled to take place later in the summer and fall, we are simultaneously making contingency plans should we not be able to convene. We will continue to provide updates as needed.

NEW! Check out our working document (3/26) that lists various policy flexibilities agencies can consider, organized by policy area (SNAP, TANF, Child Care, and Child Welfare), and action needed (federal approval not required, waiver or state plan approval needed, Congressional authorization needed). This document will be updated regularly as we receive additional ideas from members. Please contact Matt Lyons with any ideas or feedback from your agency.

On March 18, the Senate passed the Families First Coronavirus Response Act, which is the second of three COVID-19 bills expected to be passed. This bill includes nutrition support in the form of flexibilities for SNAP regarding work requirements and emergency supplemental allotments, as well as additional SNAP benefits for families with one or more children who qualify for free or reduced-price school meals.  Read APHSA's Summary of HR 6201.
