Nonprofits urge Congress to negotiate relief to support Kentuckians

Danielle Clore, Executive Director and CEO for Kentucky Nonprofit Network, led the meeting. Clore said the CARES Act, enacted in March, was a lifeline for Kentuckians as well as the nonprofit and business communities.

“At the time, everyone thought the virus would fade,” said Clore. With the pandemic ongoing, Clore said, “Our lives and economy remain at severe risk.”

Clore says the money has now run out and nonprofits are again facing layoffs and closures, “Nonprofits are businesses too.”

Clore says nonprofits are the fourth largest employer in Kentucky with $7.5 billion in annual wages.

For the consumer, Clore added that without help, “vital services and programs could disappear.” Clore says that can result in “life and death” situations for Kentuckians.
