COVID-19 has put life on pause, upending our plans and creating uncertainty for our families, businesses, and the broader economy.
The business owners, independent contractors, and self-employed service providers who make up about one-third of the total employable workforce are among the most vulnerable in this crisis. Not only have they lost significant revenue due to cancelled bookings and events, many do not have the cash buffers necessary to weather the storm, nor the ability to tap capital markets the way larger businesses can.
This could result in over a million jobs lost — friends and neighbors who will find themselves without the ability to pay for rent, food, and other essentials and putting them at risk of bankruptcy.
While federal efforts like the CARES Act will provide some relief, aid is limited and has reportedly been difficult to qualify for, leaving their businesses and livelihood in your hands.
