LISC CEO on Unemployment, Debt and the Road to COVID19 Recovery

In a Politico article examining the impending debt crunch that could further burden Americans living on low incomes, Maurice A. Jones weighs in on the unprecedented support needed to help tens of millions get through this crisis. In addition to assistance from groups like LISC, says Jones, it's time to "get back to the federal government’s next chapter in helping folks weather the storm."
