Recommendations for Immediate Relief in a Time of Crisis: Relief during and beyond COVID-19

Download (3 MB)

At its core, the Metropolitan Planning Council’s work is to advocate for the critical infrastructure and policy decisions that underpin individual and community health and wellbeing. MPC is shaping a policy response to the novel coronavirus, developing both short-term and long-term recommendations that move the region toward this vision. 

These near-term strategies employ the principle of targeted universalism—ultimately, they benefit the whole, but are targeted toward those who need them most urgently. In addition to providing immediate relief, the following recommendations set the City, Region, State and Federal government on the path toward building back a better future that is equitable, sustainable, prosperous, and transforms how we govern ourselves.
