Share this page

As announced by the Social Security Administration:

“The Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and the Council on Economic Mobility (Council) are seeking input on a new federal interagency effort to promote economic mobility for all Americans.

The Social Security Administration is a member of the Council, along with the Council of Economic Advisors and the Departments of Agriculture, Education, Health and Human Services, Housing and Urban Development, Labor, and Treasury.

HHS and the Council’s goal is to build an integrated federal strategy to promote economic recovery and resilience in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 has affected individuals and families throughout America—with communities across the country experiencing the pandemic in different ways.  To assist in the federal response, HHS and the Council are looking for feedback on the specific economic mobility, recovery, and resilience challenges in local communities.

We encourage you to review the request for information (RFI) notice and share your perspective with the Council.  The information gathered in response to the RFI will help inform the Council’s priorities, working group activities, stakeholder engagement, and federal programs.

The RFI is open for comment until October 2, 2020; however, we encourage early submissions.”
