Tennis industry resources for financial aid and assistance
Leading organizations in the tennis industry have collaborated to provide a centralized location to share information about the financial assistance and relief programs available for everyone in the tennis community affected by COVID-19.
The joint initiative between the USTA, United States Professional Tennis Association (USPTA), Professional Tennis Registry (PTR), Intercollegiate Tennis Association (ITA) and Tennis Industry Association (TIA) recognizes the importance of highlighting the programs that can provide the immediate and longer-term support that is needed.
By assembling a list of financial resources available to the tennis industry, the hope is to streamline a complicated situation and makes accessing the potential help available easier and quicker.
People are encouraged to apply as soon as possible for any programs they or their organization may be eligible. More information and resources will be provided as they are developed.
The resource package curates information from the CARES ACT stimulus plan as well as small business disaster relief resources available at the federal and state level. It also provides information on city assistance for businesses, the resources available to nonprofits and community organizations, and information on employment resources.
