Within the $2 trillion stimulus bill expected to clear Congress on Friday, nonprofits with 500 or fewer employees will be eligible for Small Business Administration loans of up to $10 million and are also eligible for expedited loans of up to $1 million. Nonprofits that keep their employees on the payroll from February 15 to June 30 could have their loans forgiven, turning the loan into a grant. The bill also includes direct support for both nonprofit cultural organizations and state and local arts and humanities agencies.
