Letter to Congress Opposing CARES Act Provisions

March 24, 2020

To: Leader McConnell, Leader Schumer, Speaker Pelosi, and Leader McCarthy

"We oppose the provisions in S. 3548, the CARES Act, introduced by Senator McConnell, that deny critical sustaining loans to non-profits. The provisions in S. 3548 exclude non-profits that provide Medicaid-reimbursed services and establishes caps that would exclude many nonprofits. Community-based nonprofits provide essential services to people in their communities, particularly those most vulnerable to COVID-19. But at the same time these organizations are seeing drastically increased demands for their service, they are also losing significant revenue due to public health emergency measures. Simply put, these organizations are a lifeline for the very communities that most need help, but face threats that are impossible to overcome without assistance from the federal government. If nonprofits, including those that provide reproductive health care, mental health care and community-based nursing care, were to be carved out, health care access and support across the country will be devastated."
