May 13, 2020   |   Back to News Congressman Neal Delivers for Working Families The Heroes Act unveiled by Congressman Neal and House Democrats yesterday includes a wide range of initiatives designed to support American workers and their families throughout the next phase of the COVID-19 crisis. 

One area of the bill the NAGE has lobbied hard for is hazard pay.  The bill includes a grant program to provide essential workers with $13 per-hour, up to $10,000 total, for service provided during the COVID-19 emergency. 

While Senate Republicans have voiced opposition to the House proposal, it our continued hope that your ongoing lobby efforts and public pressure will result in a strong support package that will honor our essential worker heroes and keep our families afloat.
