My Reserve, Our Coasts

Reserves support local economies

This summer, the Senate Appropriations Committee marked its bill at $25 million for NERRS Operations and $1.9 million for NERRS PAC; the House Appropriations Committee marked its bill at $23.5 million for NERRS Operations and $1.9 million for NERRS PAC. In the months to come, NERRA will focus on House and Senate appropriations conference work and request that any omnibus or appropriations bill that moves forward uses the Senate report numbers. We are deeply grateful to our Members of Congress and the thousands of reserve staff, friends, and partners who stepped up to help make this happen. Between now and when the White House and Congress ultimately pass a budget, NERRA will continue its efforts to reach out to our friends in the business community and add the name of their businesses to the growing list of those around the country that support and benefit from their local reserve.

Here’s how you can help our congressional champions share this important message with their colleagues:

From now through summer, contact at least four business owners and leaders in your area and ask them to sign on to this national letter of support for the reserve system. To lighten the lift, we’ve created this mad lib email for you customize and send to them.

And here are some other things you can do…
