IAM and AMSA Working Together to Address Industry Funding Support from Congress and Designation of HHG Moving Industry as an Essential Function

IAM and AMSA have teamed up on Capitol Hill to seek emergency funding relief for the DoD moving industry in light of the DoD’s Stop Movement Order impacting household goods shipments. The proposal, which had a very short window to be constructed, written, and submitted to Congress, used calculations provided by DAYCOS comparing last year’s invoices for the timeframe of the current Stop Movement (from 13 March to 11 May) as a way to validate potential losses within the industry over this 60-day period.

Stimulus Package Includes $349 Billion for SBA Guarantees of Forgivable Loans for Small and Medium Sized Businesses

On March 27, the U.S. Congress passed and the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”). IAM has been closely following the development of this COVID-19 relief effort by the U.S. Congress and believes that many of our members can take advantage of at least two programs to help support your businesses during these very difficult times.
