Unfortunately, as expected, applications for the recently passed Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) have exceeded the amount of funding available. While some of our members received their requested money, the majority have not.
The Airforwarders Association continues to advocate for a broad-based industry-wide relief effort for the forwarding community but now is the time for the White House and Congress to provide additional funding for the PPP.
I have recorded this video to explain the critical importance of the PPP additional funding issue and urge all AfA members to write their Members of Congress and Senators today.
Please tell them that the Paycheck Protection Plan needs additional funding now
