COVID Emergency Relief - Take Action
A bipartisan collection of Senators and Representatives recently announced a temporary package of COVID relief proposals. Estimated to cost $908 billion, the COVID Emergency Relief Framework would be effective December 1 through March 31, 2021. The lawmakers propose:

Ask Governor Little for a Mask Mandate
The Idaho Nonprofit Center recently collected over 200 additional signatures in addition to the 300+ we received in August, all in support of a statewide mask mandate. The next step in our efforts is to encourage you to contact the Governor's office directly and voice your support for a mask mandate
We've made it quick and easy for you:
I am writing you today in order to make sure you know that I support a statewide mask mandate for Idaho. Our state appreciates and looks forward to your continued leadership during this difficult time. You have guided us through some of the most challenging times in recent history.
However, I am concerned about the lack of action towards initiating any sort of a mask mandate for the entire state, instead leaving it up to local and regional officials to determine what is best in their community. As you may know, many in the nonprofit sector on the front lines help their communities respond to increased need for food, shelter, childcare, support for domestic abuse and healthcare.
Like you, local governments have also experienced mounting pressure from both sides of this issue. Those against face coverings are continually highlighted in the media and dominate online discussions. Their (sometimes aggressive) voices and actions are rendering local and regional control almost ineffective in some communities. Our state needs your leadership and your voice to unite us against a common enemy: COVID.
We await your brave decision to protect Idaho. Our economy, our vulnerable populations, our school children and our communities at large are depending on it.
Thank you for your time.
