ICC Provides Tools to Help Local Governments Advocate for Code-Related CARES Assistance  

The International Code Council (ICC) has launched a Coronavirus Advocacy page, which includes links to a factsheet describing: CARES Act funding sources that can be used to fund code department virtual needs, which state/local governments are receiving how much of those funding sources, eligible activities, and how interested organizations can engage in those programs. The page also includes talking points for discussing how and why government recipients of CARES Act resources should direct funds to code departments for development of remote capabilities. Contacts to Code Council field staff responsible for different states are part of the package.
