We are praying for all those individuals and ministries being affected by the risks, shutdowns, and warnings that have come from the coronavirus. While government helps (CARES Act) can sometimes be necessary, these are not “one-size-fits-all.” Legal advice from our attorneys is the same way. Just like with a doctor, there are no blanket answers for every church. Each ministry is a priority to us. Please call if you have specific questions about state regulations, laws, and government bill portions that may apply to you. While other groups push loans for ministries (often for a percentage), we want you to watch out and be wise. You do not want to have strings attached after the fact. There is no such thing as free with government help.
Also, be extremely wary of organizations that offer to help you with the loan process for a fee. It is your ministry alone on the line for audits or repayment of loans. Each decision needs to be made very carefully and with extreme caution.
Contact CLA attorneys with your questions. Our legal team is here to help you at no charge.
