Urgent Nonprofit Policy Priorities in Reforms to CARES Act

  •  July 17, 2020

 

Lutheran Child and Family Services of Illinois was one of nearly 4,000 nonprofit organizations from all 50 states that signed onto a recent broad coalition letter to Congressional leaders, urging lawmakers to include four essential policy proposals in the next COVID-19 relief legislation.

  1. Continue Emergency Funding Programs that provide nonprofits with financial support enabling them to continue and expand services protecting vulnerable families and frontline responders.
  2. Provide Low-Cost Loans to Mid-Size and Larger Nonprofits which have not been able to access government funding.
  3. Strengthen Charitable Giving Incentives to encourage all Americans to help their communities during these challenging times through charitable donations.
  4. Provide Full Unemployment Benefit Reimbursement to nonprofits that self-insure these benefits.
