The programs and initiatives in the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that was just passed by Congress are intended to assist nonprofits and small business owners with whatever needs they have right now. The Florida Nonprofit Alliance (FNA) has created a toolkit about the major programs and initiatives that are available from the Small Business Administration (SBA) to address these needs, as well as some additional tax provisions that are outside the scope of SBA.
Along with certain small businesses, private non-profit organizations that are a non-governmental agency or entity that currently have an effective ruling letter from the IRS granting tax exemption under sections 501(c),(d), or (e) of the Internal Revenue Code of 1954, or satisfactory evidence from the State that the non-revenue producing organization or entity is a non-profit one organized or doing business under State law, as well as faith-based organizations, are eligible to apply for SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loans.
