On February 29, the White House Office of Intergovernmental Affairs and the Office of Public Engagement hosted 55 local elected officials and community leaders from across the states of Kentucky, Tennessee, and West Virginia as part of its “Communities in Action” event series.

During the half-day forum, senior Biden-Harris Administration officials highlighted the impacts of the American Rescue Plan, Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, and Inflation Reduction Act on communities across the three states. Participants included local elected officials, labor leaders, educators, childcare professionals and community organizers, who work to leverage the historic investments from the President’s Investing in America agenda to create and expand opportunities for working families.

The forum was the twenty-seventh in a series of “Communities in Action” events that the White House hosts with state and local leaders to demonstrate how the Biden-Harris Administration is delivering critical progress for the American people.

Administration officials included Director of Public Engagement Stephen Benjamin, Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg, Domestic Policy Advisor Neera Tanden, Chair of the Council on Environmental Quality Brenda Mallory, Deputy Directors of Gun Violence Prevention Greg Jackson and Rob Wilcox, Implementation Coordinator of the American Rescue Plan Gene Sperling, and Director for External Affairs at Department of Commerce Molly Ritner.
