To ensure that you have the latest information on federal relief packages, we wanted to provide summary details of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. The legislation would provide emergency assistance for individuals, families, first responders, health care providers, and businesses affected by the COVID-19 public health emergency.
The U.S. Small Business Administration is offering low-interest federal disaster loans for working capital to Rhode Island small businesses suffering substantial economic injury as a result of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Learn more information about the program
Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, AIA National has made the difficult decision to postpone the AIA Conference on Architecture 2020, May 14–16 in Los Angeles.
As you know, AIA has been closely monitoring directives from city, county, and state officials, as well as the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the World Health Organization (WHO) throughout this crisis. Your health and safety are paramount, and AIA feels compelled to postpone the annual conference to minimize the risk to all concerned.
By making this decision in advance, we also hope to minimize any stress or inconvenience. We are working with our vendors and partners to reschedule A'20 now and we will share rescheduling information with you soon.
