The CARES Act, signed into law on March 27, designated that 501(c)(3) entities and 501(c)(19) entities are eligible participants in the Paycheck Protection Program, but it did not specify if the “religious” status would make faith-based organizations ineligible.

Posted 7:25 PM by
At the end of the last century, when I owned and operated trucking companies, we used to daydream about how great it would be if some sort of capacity constraining event occurred and there were fewer trucking companies, and thereby trucks (capacity), available to the shipping public. We would finally find common ground with the shippers who held our rates down for so many years, pay the drivers what they were worth, and see big financial results. We could never have imagined – or wished for – the current circumstances we are experiencing with the COVID-19 pandemic.
