I am writing to you about an issue critical to Road Scholar, formerly Elderhostel, the not-for-profit, educational travel organization that provides learning adventures for more than 100,000 older Americans annually. Road Scholar employs more than 600 staff throughout the United States and operates learning programs in all 50 states and 150 countries.
Road Scholar needs your help. It is critical that Congress, in addressing the devastating effects of the coronavirus, include relief for non-profit Road Scholar. Although the CARES Act signed into law contained loan provisions that should have benefited Road Scholar, mid-sized non-profits, like Road Scholar, have been denied access to these loans.
As a member of Congress, there are two ways you can help …
- Raise the Small Business Association employee limit from 500 to 1,000 for non-profit organizations, or exclude part-time employees from the 500-employee size criteria.
- Ask the Treasury Department and Federal Reserve to ensure that non-profits are eligible for the Main Street Lending Program.
Road Scholar is too important to the well-being of America’s older adults, and it’s imperative that the organization be here when it is safe and appropriate for them to travel and learn again.
