The CARES Act & Nonprofits

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) signed into law on March 27, 2020 provides a $2 trillion economic stimulus package to offset the hardship that businesses are experiencing in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic. Not only does the CARES Act provide important support for private sector businesses, it also includes a number of provisions designed to provide relief specifically for nonprofit organizations, including through loans, grants, tax credits and other incentives.

Please join King & Spalding attorneys for a discussion of the CARES Act and its implications for nonprofit organizations, including institutions of higher learning. The speakers will delve into the various programs authorized by the CARES Act applicable to a broad range of nonprofit organizations, colleges and universities. We will also examine a very recent wave of COVID-related class action litigation filed against colleges and universities resulting from the transition to online learning and discuss what is likely to be coming next by way of further action from Congress.
