Press Release
Event will feature local resources to assist suffering federal employees

INDIANAPOLIS, IN- On Friday, January 25, Congressman Carson will partner with the City of Indianapolis to connect federal employees affected by the government shutdown to resources in Indianapolis. The event will feature community organizations offering assistance in a variety of areas to qualified federal employees who are impacted by the shutdown.

“I hope we can end this shutdown and reopen the government immediately, before this situation gets any worse for federal employees,” said Congressman André Carson. “Today, over 5,000 Hoosiers are struggling to pay their bills and put food on their tables. I will continue to fight to end this shutdown. But in the meantime, I feel it is imperative that impacted federal workers and their families have access to community resources that may help them during this difficult time.”

“Over the last month, we have seen countless examples of Indianapolis residents, business owners, and non-profits stepping up in the midst of the federal government shut down,” said Mayor Joe Hogsett. “That’s what Indianapolis does—care for one another when neighbors need help.  I applaud the work of Congressman Carson and the many City and community service providers who are coming together to help impacted employees navigate this difficult time.”
