NWRA JOINS CHAMBER OF COMMERCE ON LETTER TO CONGRESS SUPPORTING AID FOR NON-PROFIT ORGANIZATIONS

Without Financial Assistance, Non-Profits Could Close Leaving Many Members without Vital Services

Arlington, VA – The National Waste and Recycling Association (NWRA) joined the US Chamber of Commerce, local chambers of commerce, and other non-profit organizations from across the country on a letter to Congress urging support for financial assistance in the COVID-19 economic stimulus legislation.

 

“NWRA is proud to join other non-profit organizations from across the country on this letter. Congress was right to make certain non-profit organizations eligible for aid. Without this assistance, many of these organizations will have to close their doors, leaving members without the vital services these associations and their employees provide to their industries and professions. We urge Congress to extend this assistance to local chambers of commerce and trade groups,” said NWRA President and CEO Darrell Smith.

 

NWRA has remained engaged with federal, state, and local governments urging regulatory flexibility and financial aid during the COVID-19 pandemic.
