Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi visited North East Medical Services (NEMS) Chinatown, in San Francisco on Wednesday.
Pelosi discussed Pres. Joe Biden’s $1.9 trillion American Rescue Plan to heal from the global pandemic.
“We want to make sure that the rescue package is successful in what it set out to do,” Pelosi said.
NEMS will receive $11 million from the American Rescue Plan.
“This funding is especially for our work to care for and protect the vulnerable Asian seniors who have been targeted in recent months by hate,” said NEMS Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kenneth Tai.
