Pennsylvania Call for Executive and Legislative Support

June 5, 2020

Pennsylvania 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 Pennsylvania to waive the remaining 50% reimbursable unemployment charges after the 50% provided in the CARES Act. Contact Governor Wolf and your legislators via phone and email asking the following:

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

FIRST, please contact your legislators which can be found at the following site: https://www.legis.state.pa.us/cfdocs/legis/home/findyourlegislator/. Once you identify your legislators, call and email asking for their support. It is crucial to let them know that many nonprofits will go bankrupt if the State of Pennsylvania does not grant this waiver.
