Empowering Black Businesses and Finding Support for Business Owners in 2021
State Senator Art Haywood, District 4
State Senator Art Haywood has worked to reduce homelessness through the expansion of the Pennsylvania Housing Affordability and Rehabilitation Enhancement Act, passed requirements to test for lead in water in Pennsylvania schools, and successfully championed legislation to relocate domestic violence survivors living in public housing.
In 2020, he fought for $193 million in federal CARES Act funds to be allocated to prevent evictions, foreclosures, and homelessness in Pennsylvania during the COVID-19 pandemic. Governor Tom Wolf appointed Haywood to his COVID-19 Vaccine Task Force to improve the vaccine distribution in Pennsylvania in February 2021.
