SIGN ON: Letter to New York’s Congressional Delegation

First Nonprofit continues to advocate for 100% relief of COVID-19 unemployment claims charges for ALL nonprofits.

Today, Nonprofit New York also called for additional support of expanded unemployment insurance coverage for nonprofits who have experienced losses related to the COVID-19:

 

“The COVID-19 crisis is unprecedented – no one could have foreseen an instance where all or most of an organization’s workforce was laid off at once at a time when their services are needed the most. Under the CARES Act, employers who self-insure will only receive 50% reimbursement for their unemployment insurance claims, unless New York State provides an additional 50%. Before COVID-19, many nonprofits may have chosen to self-insure as the most prudent unemployment insurance option, however during this time of crisis we need to support our nonprofit workers. We recommend Congress expand unemployment insurance reimbursement funding to 100% for organizations that self-insure.”

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.
