At this time, independent schools that accept loans related to COVID-19 legislation will be considered recipients of federal financial assistance. For information on what it means to be a recipient of federal financial assistance, see Part II of this NAIS Member Advisory, “That’s a Lot of Money! Should I Take it, or Leave it? A Guide for Independent Schools Considering Federal Financial Assistance” (requires NAIS member login) and the McLane Middleton article, “FFA and the SBA: Implications for Independent Schools Accepting Federal Financial Assistance.” Based on our current knowledge of the SBA PPP program, focus your attention on the sections regarding the Age Discrimination Act, Title VI, Title IX, and Section 504.
NAIS and NBOA are advocating for changes to the law. NBOA members can learn more about these efforts via NBOA Connect.
