The current COVID-19 public health crisis has affected every community, but has a significant impact on vulnerable populations. It has affected our health and mental health, and has hindered access to necessary supports and resources.

Aligning for Health has put together a set of resource documents that include links to COVID-19 data and GIS tools, resource directories, and guidance from the federal and state governments. We will continue to update these resources and hope they will be helpful.

Western Governors’ Association Endorses Social Determinants Accelerator Act

Aligning for Health is excited to announce that the Western Governors’ Association, an independent organization representing the Governors of the 22 westernmost states and territories, has endorsed the Social Determinants Accelerator Act (H.R. 4004) and sent a letter in support of the Social Determinants Accellerator Act to House Energy and Commerce Committee Chairman Pallone (D-NJ) and Ranking Member Walden (R-OR).

The Western Governors’ Association joins several other state and local government organizations in supporting the Social Determinants Accelerator Act – legislation that would empower states, localities, and tribal organizations to design right-sized interventions to meet their unique community needs.
