Through the Partners Service Stability Program, we are committed to helping alleviate the social and economic impacts of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) by ensuring that services and supports remain available to those in need.

To further assist our valued providers, we are offering a unique opportunity for participation in two live webinars on the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) offered through our auditors, Cherry Bekaert. Please click on the links below to register for one of the sessions.

The CARES Act establishes a new $349 billion Paycheck Protection Program for small businesses. The program is designed to provide relief to millions of small businesses so they can keep going and keep their workers employed. In addition to the webinars, additional business resources can be found on CLA’s COVID-19 Resource Hub, as well as livestreaming of latest updates and guidance on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 3 p.m. To register for the livestreaming events, click here. If you miss a live event, you can access a recorded version.

As a reminder, we have shared with you a simple Service Stability Funding Request form developed to help us work with you to quickly determine and align needs with available resources. (This form replaces the Exceptional Funding Request Form, however, if you have already submitted the Exceptional Funding Request form, no further action is needed.) We believe this process will allow true partnering through deliberate and transparent conversations so that we respond quickly to your individual circumstances. Our mutual goal is to work TOGETHER to overcome challenges and initiate innovative ways to meet the needs of our members.
