COVID-19-Related Assistance Now Available
On April 1, 2020, American Baptist Churches USA Acting General Secretary Dr. C. Jeff Woods published a letter to American Baptists with information about available COVID-19-related assistance. Information is included about the CARES Act (Recovery Rebates and the Paycheck Protection Program), as well as other resources from the Ministers and Missionaries Benefit Board and the American Baptist Home Mission Societies.
Please note that for the Paycheck Protection Program application process, churches are included, but must take the initiative in making the application. Applications should be submitted as soon as possible, as the funds set aside for this program are limited.
This new Ecumenical Stewardship Center resource is available at no cost to you.
