Dear APAP Members and Colleagues,
As sobering news of the impacts of the Coronavirus pandemic continues, I lean into the question, what can I do right now to make a difference and to be of service? In fact, as your service organization, the entire APAP team has been working tirelessly on your behalf in the face of this crisis. This is our ethic.
I want to give you some updates on the work we've been doing, as well as ask you to take action.
Already contacted your members of Congress? THANK YOU!
APAP has just launched
a field-wide survey
in order to collect data for us to share with organizational funders and to include in advocacy efforts to the U.S. federal government. Your responses also help APAP determine how best to serve you. Completing
the survey takes only five minutes
Take the survey now
and share this survey widely.
In case you missed it, here are some important relief efforts for organizations and artists:
- As part of the initial Congressional response to Coronavirus, the SBA's Economic Injury Loan Program has received additional funding to provide disaster relief loans, related to COVID-19, with eligibility for nonprofit organizations. If you are a small business, you should contact your local district SBA office to determine your eligibility. This program is expected to grow as more relief becomes available.
APAP is here for you. Don't hesitate to reach out to us. We are in uncharted waters, but we are stronger together. We encourage you to forward this message to your colleagues.
