Dear OSCC members and colleagues -
The coronavirus crisis has had a devastating impact on our economy. Small businesses have been applying for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) forgivable loans authorized under the CARES Act, as well as the Small Business Administration (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) and Emergency Grants for support during this time. Due to the need for these programs, funds have been quickly exhausted.
We need swift bipartisan action NOW to bolster these programs and help our most vulnerable small businesses survive.
Also, Congress is in the final stages of negotiating additional funding for the CARES Act. Inclusion of all non-profits in the Paycheck Protection Program remains an open issue. Please call your Senators to urge them to include 501(c)(6) non-profits.
