Home COVID-19 WFCA urges industry to take action to combat pandemic hardship

In response to the drafting of a fifth round of legislation aimed at relieving the stress on small businesses from the COVID-19 pandemic, the World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) is urging its members to make their voices heard.

The group released the following statement:

“WFCA Members,

Congress is currently considering a fifth round of major legislation to help small businesses and to stimulate the economy in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. Bipartisan, bicameral leadership from the United States Senate and U.S. House of Representatives are currently negotiating various proposals that will address PPP loan forgiveness, expand what a PPP loan can be used to pay for, provide tax credits to offset the costs of providing personal protection equipment, create new long-term low-cost loan programs and provide other needed aid for small businesses and the economy. This will impact you directly and you can have a voice in these discussions.

You are a vital component of WFCA’s strategy to ensure Congress approves assistance programs that actually work for our industry. Emails from constituents like you can have a significant impact. Click here to Take Action Now.

We also suggest you encourage your partners, co-owners, employees, family, and friends to participate in this grassroots campaign by sharing this email with them and providing them with the link to our campaign.

Together,

WFCA Team”
