On Jan. 8, Gov. Gavin Newsom released his proposed 2021-22 State Budget
, which prioritizes funding to support COVID-19 response and recovery, but lacks significant fiscal support for cities. The proposed budget includes $370 million to expedite vaccine delivery, and the Governor is asking lawmakers to approve a roughly $5 billion “early action” proposal, which includes $2.4 billion to send $600 payments to low-income families, $2 billion to reopen schools, and nearly $650 million in grants for businesses impacted by the pandemic.
Following the release of the budget proposal, League of California Cities Executive Director and CEO Carolyn Coleman released a statement
calling on the state to prioritize investments in cities to ensure a successful and equitable economic recovery for all Californians.
