Advocacy Alert: Take Action New Federal Relief Bill + Resources

 

Advocacy Alert: Take Action
New Federal Relief Bill + Resources

 


 

Dance/NYC in collaboration with Dance/USA is urging members of the New York City metropolitan dance community to send your letters to Congress. Specifically:

 

FEDERAL ACTION 
- Last week, the House of Representatives passed the HEROES Act for federal relief that is triggering more aggressive debate on contents for the next Federal Relief Package. We need YOU to complete this Action Alert and send your letters to Congress NOW. With each new federal relief bill, Congress needs to hear from you about your needs and the impact of COVID-19 on your work and life.  

 

Call to action


- Also this past week, the Small Business Administration (SBA) has released the Forgiveness Application for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The U.S. Treasury and Small Business Administration have released the long-awaited guidance on PPP loan forgiveness. 

STATE
• New York Forward Loan Fund (NYFLF) is a new economic recovery loan program aimed at supporting New York State small businesses, nonprofits and small landlords as they reopen after the COVID-19 outbreak and NYS on PAUSE.

 

JOIN NYC DANCE FIELD-WIDE CALL
- Dance/NYC will begin to host weekly field-wide calls to address the needs, questions and plans for the future of our field in NYC.  
Calls will begin on Thursday, May 28th from 4:00 pm. – 5:00 p.m. every week. To ensure the safety of our digital discussion, registration to join the calls is required. Given the size and nature of our community, we would like to ensure that each call includes cross-representation from the field.  We kindly ask that you limit participation to one person per organization, group or project.
