Statement on Additional Funding for COVID-19 Relief Programs

In response to a deal being announced for further funding for COVID-19 relief programs, Tim Delaney, President and CEO of the National Council of Nonprofits released the following statement:

“We’re glad more funding is being made available for the PPP and EIDL programs. Many nonprofits needing access to these funds were shut out of the first round of funding. It’s a big deal that the bill carves out $60 billion for small lenders that were the success story for nonprofits during the first round. These are the lenders that, like nonprofits, put community ahead of profits or privilege.

“But with attention already turning to the next phase of legislation, more must be done to ensure nonprofits have the resources they need as people in communities are turning to their local nonprofits even more. With demand for their services skyrocketing, many nonprofits want to be hiring, but without additional action by Congress, the best they can hope for will be to survive.”
