The Federation has been in close touch with our community partners and stakeholders, discussing how the Jewish Federation and our integrated community can play a positive role during this challenging time. We are uniquely situated to help people of all ages find the assistance they need and stay connected even in a time of social distancing and isolation.
Everything you need to know to access the funds
The CARES Act allocated$350 billion in funding to help keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program, the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small business & nonprofits..
The loans can be used for operational costs including:
+ health benefits, paid, sick, medical/family leave and insurance premiums
+ mortgage interest
+ rent payments
+ interest on debt incurred before the covered period
Organizations may qualify to have a portion of their loan forgiven, if they meet certain requirements.
JFNA will continue to provide important information to make sure that our Jewish nonprofit agencies, synagogues, Federations and more stay on top of the available resources.
