UPCOMING PANDEMIC EMERGENCY RELIEF LEGISLATION: JOIN US IN URGING LAWMAKERS TO ADDRESS NONPROFIT HEALTH AND HUMAN SERVICES PROVIDER NEEDS IN "CARES 2.0"
Lutheran Services in America has been carefully listening to our member network about your most pressing needs during the current COVID-19 crisis, and we continue to communicate those priority needs to lawmakers. Thanks in large measure to your participation, Congress eliminated the Medicaid exclusion on forgivable loans for some nonprofits when it recently passed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES) Act, the third relief measure in a continuing series. Thank you for playing such a central role in this progress.
This was an important step forward, but we must go further. Today, we sent a letter to all House and Senate members urging them to include several key elements in the next round of legislation, which will help ensure our health and human services providers on the front lines receive much-needed additional support and resources, so they can continue to meet the growing needs of individuals and communities at their most vulnerable time.
We’re asking you to join us again now in writing to your lawmakers who already are writing the next relief bill, with votes expected to occur at this time when Congress is back in session following their Easter recess. Click here to use our quick and easy advocacy tool.
