    Dear friends and colleagues,

    Laurie Baskin has posted a great blog post for immediate things to consider in navigating the relief opportunities in the $2 trillion Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act):

    Maybe the most important piece of advice? Time is of the essence to prepare and submit your application for the SBA Paycheck Protection COVID-19 relief loan program, as these dollars will go quickly and nonprofits are eligible but the competition for these funds will be fierce. Getting your application in as early as possible is one of the best things you can do.

    Her post has a bunch of additional CARES Act resources, and in other posts, she's shared valuable resources about how to take advantage of the protections and relief offered by the the Families First Coronavirus Response Act :

    Also, if you haven't visited the Relief and Recovery Funds library entry lately, it's worth a visit, as Rachael's begun organizing resources at the state level to make things easier to find. Please remember we welcome you adding your own resources as you find them!

    With love and resilience,
    Corinna
