Code officials, contractors, manufacturers and members of the various organizations are invited to attend the webinar to learn from U.S. Chamber of Commerce experts on the following topics:
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act
The Paycheck Protection Program
The CARES Act (federal resources for businesses and individuals)
What Congress is working on now
"People in every community throughout America, and globally for that matter, are feeling the effects of COVID-19," said Dain Hansen, IAPMO's executive vice president of government relations. "With local, state and federal governments recognizing the plumbing industry as 'essential' during this crisis, it is clear that we are on the front lines in protecting public health and safety. To help individuals and businesses during this time, the federal government has passed several economic stimulus packages — with more under consideration. This live presentation will provide our industry with an important understanding of what these resources mean to them, and what they can expect moving forward."
The webinar is free and open to the public. Registration is available online.
