U.S. Senate Passes COVID-19 Relief Measure; Private Schools Eligible for Aid!

Capitol Building

3/26 UPDATE FROM COUNCIL FOR AMERICAN PRIVATE EDUCATION: 

The United States Senate approved a $2 trillion coronavirus relief package that includes $13.5 billion for K-12 schools. Thanks in no small part to your advocacy, private schools are eligible for this aid.
More details about the precise nature of the aid will be forthcoming, but it is important to remember that the House of Representatives still has to have its say. Nothing is final at this point. Still, the bill coming out of the Senate includes private schools, and that is good news. We will let you know if advocacy is needed on the House side.
Thank you very much for your responsiveness.

 

The Diocese of Camden has alerted Gloucester Catholic to contact our NJ Senators to secure COVID-19 relief aid to Catholic Schools. The Senate is currently finalizing legislation concerning economic relief for all of us affected by the COVID-19 virus.

Please use CAPE’s Legislative Action Center (see below) to urge senators to make sure that private schools are not excluded from Congress’ COVID-19 relief package.
