MEDIA ADVISORY The National Academy of Public Administration and the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee to Host Event Examining the Impact of Pandemic Response Programs and Spending on Underserved Communities

Post Date: August 06, 2021

WASHINGTON, D.C. – The National Academy of Public Administration will join the Pandemic Response Accountability Committee (PRAC) in hosting an August 12th online panel discussion of the impact of pandemic response programs and spending on underserved communities during the COVID-19 pandemic.

From the outset of the pandemic, it became clear that health and economic burdens were not shouldered equally among the American population. For example, minority and women-owned businesses reported difficulties accessing emergency business loans, and those living in rural areas experienced challenges accessing testing and vaccination clinics.
