Coronavirus Relief Package
President Signs into Law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act
On March 27, 2020, President Trump signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (H.R. 748), following its unanimous passage by both the Senate and the House of Representatives earlier in the week. The $2.2 trillion package aims to address the coronavirus pandemic and its impact on the economy.
Over 600 Lutheran Services in America member representatives sent nearly 1,150 messages to their Senators and Representatives, at all hours of the day and night, calling for nonprofit organizations to be included in this relief package. This action was critical – THANK YOU to everyone involved!

This is a key step forward, yet much work remains to be done. Lutheran Services in America will continue to work closely with our federal partners daily to help ensure the needs of our members and the people they serve are front and center.
