Updates on Issues Discussed In the Last Legislative Watch:
Federal Updates: Nonprofits Speak Up for COVID Relief
The $1.9 trillion stimulus package bill (the American Rescue Plan) is thin on provisions for nonprofits. Help focus the attention of lawmakers on the needs of charitable nonprofits by signing your organization onto a new nonprofit letter calling for a package of solutions tailored to the needs and realities of nonprofits serving the public good. Specifically, the letter calls for nonprofit-specific grants and forgivable loans for nonprofits of all sizes, an increase and extension of charitable giving incentives, full coverage of unemployment costs of reimbursing (self-insured) employers, and financial aid to state and local governments. Read the letter to the federal leaders and go here to sign on now! We encourage you to sign by this Friday, February 5th.
