Help mRelief Apply for Federal Relief Loans

Allow mRelief to continue transforming access to social services for the inherent dignity of all people.

Posted April 3, 2020

The global pandemic and the economic destruction it is causing create major challenges that threaten these programs. We seek assistance applying for loans under the CARES Act, so that we can continue to fund our operations and pursue our work this year. Some initial questions: Can you explain more about the 1% interest rate? Is that deducted from the amount that is forgivable if we do not have any layoffs? Also how would this grant be affected if someone left on their own accord? Are we barred from making additional hires during the next 8 weeks? How should nonprofits answer the question of the "owner" of applicant business? vs. Authorized Representative of business?
