COVID-19 Relief Funding: What You Need to Know
Join KHCA/KCAL for a webinar next Wednesday, June 24th.

In this webinar, leading consultants to the senior living industry will analyze the various sources of stimulus funding, the differences between forgivable grants and repayable loans, and the necessary accounting requirements to avoid the risk of repayment. 

They will leverage decades of experience with government grants and programs to offer insight on how to properly account for lost revenues and new expenses associated with the pandemic, as well as avoid the risk of “double-dipping” by properly matching funding sources to expenditures. Finally, advice will be provided to avoid the other risks from audits of these new government grants.
