July 1, 2020

THANK YOU to the 2,200 organizations that signed the nonprofit association community letter to urge Congress to support the nonprofit association community.

As a reminder, the letter calls for the following:

  1. Provide 501(c)(6) organizations access to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and reauthorize the PPP until at least December 31, 2020.
  1. Pass the Pandemic Risk Insurance Act of 2020 (R. 7011), which would establish a system of shared public and private compensation for business interruption losses and event cancellations resulting from future pandemics or public health emergencies. If enacted, this program would begin January 2021. (Bill text.)
  1. Pass the Skills Renewal Act (R. 7032 / S. 3779), per proposed amendment. The Skills Renewal Act would provide Americans who have been laid-off or furloughed due to COVID-19 a $4,000 tax credit to pursue post-secondary skills training and career development. (Bill text.)

With this letter, ASAE will continue to advocate support for our community ahead of the next major COVID-19 relief package.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our country and steadfast advocacy on behalf of our nonprofit association community.
