ABA Seeks Info from Banks on Coronavirus Response

As the coronavirus pandemic continues to spread in the United States, with effects both on individuals' health and the U.S. economy,   ABA  is compiling a list of actions individual banks are taking to support their retail and business clients, protect their employees and support the economy. The running list will help   ABA  educate both the public and policymakers about how banks are helping customers affected by the crisis. 

Banks looking to share details on their initiatives can email information to   or complete this survey. The list will be updated as more information is received from banks across the country.
Attention Members:  Nationwide our hospitals are suffering from a shortage of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for our hardworking healthcare workers who are on the frontlines of this pandemic. Some organizations may have a supply of masks on hand as part of their Pandemic Response Plan - check your inventory and if you can, contact your local hospital to donate today.
