Budgeting

[ARCHIVED] Share the Message: MunisAreEssential

The League has launched the MunisAreEssential campaign in response to budget shortfalls local governments are experiencing due to the COVID-19 pandemic, and is encouraging local officials to contact their state and federal legislators to support bills that will address revenue shortfalls by providing funding and/or tools. We are also asking officials to educate their citizens on how local government budgets work, as we have witnessed a lot of misunderstanding in this area.

Social media graphics and sample posts are available on the League’s website. To help spread this message, please share these posts on your municipal feeds, and remember to tag with #MunisAreEssential. This campaign coincides with the National League of Cities’ “Cities Are Essential” effort to secure direct federal funding to local governments nationwide.
