A message from Congressman Engel
I have good news for our district: After I co-led our Congressional Delegation in demanding that New York be prioritized for CARES Act funding, I am pleased to announce that we were just awarded $5 billion in federal funds for New York hospitals—5 times more than any other state.
I’ve fought for New Yorkers my whole life. As we navigate this crisis, I promise I will continue that fight every day in Washington.
