Action Needed to Provide Relief for Nonprofits

During the COVID-19 pandemic, individuals and families in communities across the country are relying on nonprofits of all sizes to address their most urgent needs. But, without additional help from Congress, many nonprofits may not be able to continue their life-saving work.

The American Heart Association and our nonprofit friends and partners need your help. We need you to contact your members of Congress and urge them to provide further financial relief for nonprofits. While the CARES Act did provide some limited relief for nonprofits, much more needs to be done to ensure nonprofits weather these difficult times and can continue to serve our communities. As Congress considers the next COVID-19 relief package, they need to provide relief for nonprofits large and small in the same way they provided support for large for-profit industries hit hard by the virus.
