Chambers Win PPP Eligibility

After months of fighting for access to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), chambers of commerce and other 501(c)(6) nonprofit organizations can access federal support in the December 2020 COVID stimulus deal.

Eligible chambers must not receive more than 15 percent of their revenue from lobbying activities. Lobbying activities may not comprise more than 15 percent of the total activities of the organization and lobbying expenses during the most recent tax year may not exceed $1 million.
