NEW Application Forms and Extended Deadline for Paycheck Protection Program and Further Expanded Eligibility for Second Draw Loans
Thanks in part to advocacy from our network and the broader nonprofit community, today, March 31, 2021, President Biden signed into law the PPP Extension Act, which extends the deadline for Paycheck Protection Program forgivable loan applications to May 31. The program had been set to expire on March 31.
The Small Business Administration (SBA) has also released the NEW application forms Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) borrowers must submit to apply for first-time loans or “second draw” loans, as well as indicating expanded eligibility for those second draw loans.

Upcoming Strength & Service Series Webinar
Date: May 12, 2021
Time: 1:00 -2:00 p.m. EDT
A new wave of complexity is hitting the senior living & care sector. More Americans are entering retirement than ever before, but economic pressures from the pandemic and increasing complexity of the care for seniors are driving many nonprofit senior services providers to either affiliate or undergo acquisition with private sector companies. Many not-for-profits are taking a hard look at their long-term viability as they reconcile their extensive history of caregiving, vast industry knowledge, deep connection to the community, and mission-driven culture with the goals of remaining competitive, relevant and financially sound. During this webinar, Ziegler will talk about trends in the not-for-profit senior living & care sector and will highlight what providers need to consider as they look to preserve their Lutheran heritage and not-for-profit spirit.

President Biden on Wednesday unveiled the American Families Plan, a $1.8 trillion package, that he wants Congress to pass together with his $2 trillion infrastructure package, the American Jobs Plan, laid out a month ago. Whether enacted together or separately, the packages are aimed at pulling the nation out of the COVID-19 pandemic and revitalizing the economy. The new proposal lacks health care provisions but would extend or make permanent key tax credits initially enacted as part of COVID-19 pandemic relief packages last year to help working families through the pandemic. The proposal would also provide for universal paid family and sick leave. The American Jobs Plan would make a major $400 billion investment in home and community-based services for aging adults and persons with disabilities and would extend the Money Follows the Person program. The plan also proposes to create jobs and raise wages for essential home care workers and invest in high-speed broadband, housing, and workforce development infrastructure.
