Franchot Partners with SECU to Launch Healthcare Heroes Initiative

March 28th, 2022 by WCBC Radio

SECU, Maryland’s largest state-chartered credit union, and Comptroller Peter Franchot today announced a new initiative recognizing healthcare workers for their perseverance, compassion and bravery. The SECU Cares Package pays tribute to healthcare workers through exclusive financial wellness services, community outreach and financial center support.

“Throughout the pandemic, healthcare workers have selflessly sacrificed to help us. We must continue to show our gratitude and support them as much as possible,” Comptroller Franchot said. “I am proud to partner in the SECU Cares Package to promote such a comprehensive initiative that directly gives back to our healthcare heroes.”

Partnering with SECU is the Comptroller's most recent initiative to provide relief to Maryland taxpayers struggling from the financial impact of the pandemic. This year alone, Comptroller Franchot extended the state tax filing and payment deadline for individual filers until July 15, 2022. He also was the first to call for a 90-day state gas tax holiday to ease the burden on motorists; Governor Hogan and the General Assembly agreed to a 30-day suspension.

"Maryland is in a strong position to rebound from the pandemic, but the recovery has not yet touched our most vulnerable residents," Comptroller Franchot added.
