Coronavirus Relief Package
Join Us in Urging Senators to Support Nonprofit Needs
The House of Representatives passed the Health and Economic Recovery Omnibus Emergency Solutions (HEROES) Act, a $3 trillion measure that is meant to continue to blunt the impact the coronavirus pandemic is having on businesses, individuals, and the economy overall. The bill would establish a $200 billion Heroes Fund to provide hazard pay for essential workers (including those at nonprofit health and human services organizations) and would improve and expand forgivable and low-interest loan options for nonprofits, including those with more than 500 employees.
It is very important that we continue to reach out to Senators to share our priorities for provisions (listed below), which must be included in order to continue support for your essential work.
- Access to financial relief for health and human service nonprofits with more than 500 employees via forgivable loans, modeled on the Paycheck Protection Program
- Targeted financial resources for nonprofit frontline health and human services providers via a new $100 billion grant program to cover unreimbursed expenses attributable to the coronavirus public health emergency
- 100% reimbursement of the cost of unemployment insurance benefits paid by nonprofits who self-fund these benefits
- $2 billion in additional funding for vulnerable youth and children through the Child Abuse Prevention and Treatment Act and Title IV-E Chafee funds
