This week’s hangout is a collaboration from the Partnership to End HIV, STDs, and Hepatitis working together to provide an update to the PPP and CARES Act. Since it looks like Congress will approve another round of funding, we thought it might be helpful for constituents to speak with our joint lobbying firm Brownstein Hyatt Farber Schreck about this initiative.
The first round of funding did not go as planned for too many. Will this next round be any better? The Partnership’s lobbyist David H. Reid and his colleague Matthew McKissick will be online to talk about the new round of support and how nonprofits can apply.
We invite everyone to participate and share strategies for success. In full transparency, the Partnership had very mixed results with the first round of PPP funding. NMAC’s bank, Capital One, never got it together to accept applications. The AIDS Institute was approved, and they are waiting for the check. AIDS United applied but has not received final word. NASTAD did not apply.
The Hangouts are a place to check-in and commiserate. They run around 45 minutes, with 20 minutes for the presentation and 25 minutes for questions. We’ve shortened the hangouts because we are all on too many zoom calls. Please be safe during these difficult times.
Yours in the struggle,
