Wednesday, March 18, 2020

HARTFORD, CT -- CCP sent a letter to the Connecticut Congressional delegation urging support for the nonprofit community in response to the COVID-19 emergency.

Four specific asks were outlined:

  • Support the policy platform of the national nonprofit community, including providing a stimulus of $60 billion to nonprofit organizations providing critical services as well as those that are adversely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
  • Institute improvements to the charitable deduction, including raising the cap and allowing taxpayers to claim the deduction on their 2019 tax returns.
  • Include nonprofits fully in all emergency loan funds and tax relief provisions offered to businesses.
  • Support the House’s provision of $50 billion to support childcare providers providing critical support to families.
