Florida: Call for Executive and Legislative Support

Florida: Call for Executive and Legislative Support

As nonprofits face unprecedented financial challenges due to COVID-19, your action is needed in requesting the State of Florida to waive the remaining 50% reimbursable unemployment charges after the 50% provided in the CARES Act. Contact Governor DeSantis and your legislators via phone and email asking the following:

*

We are requesting a waiver from the State of Florida’s requirement that reimbursing employers reimburse the State for unemployment charges when those charges are for COVID-19 related unemployment claims.

*

FIRST, please call and email your Senate and House legislators asking for their support. It is crucial to let them know that many nonprofits will go bankrupt if the State of Florida does not grant this waiver. 

*

SECOND, contact Governor DeSantis and key staff:

Because INCS advocates for the operating conditions that allow charter public schools to provide high quality public education, partnering with First Nonprofit was an easy decision. First Nonprofit’s unemployment programs provide our member schools two operating elements crucial to their ability to provide high quality public education: savings and budget certainty. Capable, committed teachers are the key to student success. By participating in the unemployment insurance savings plan, charter public schools gain peace of mind and are able to invest more money in their teachers.
