    Dear Association Executives - Attached as we just discussed on the weekly Association Executives video/teleconference, please find our "EMERGENCY FUNDING FOR BEHAVIORAL HEALTH ORGANIZATIONS DURING THE COVID-19 CRISIS" request for $38.5 billion in emergency supplemental funding for direct payments to behavioral health organizations. This request also lists the 40 organizations, led by the National Council, which are supporting this request.

    Also attached please find a letter from the National Council and the American Society of Addiction Medicine to congressional leadership summarizing this request.

    We will keep you updated on the progress of this request as the legislative process moves forward.
