Urge Congress to Provide Step 1 Sell Through Period in Coronavirus Relief Package

Hearth, Patio & Barbecue Association

The U.S. Congress has been working on multiple pieces of legislation that would provide relief to Americans in the wake of impacts by the coronavirus COVID-19. So far, enacted legislation has addressed general small business concerns and tax policy and not industry-specific relief.

The EPA’s Step 2 deadline of May 15, 2020 still stands, regardless of closures and lack of foot traffic as a result of coronavirus mitigation measures. HPBA sent a letter to Congressional leadership and proposed legislative language that would extend the retail sales deadline for Step 1 products until December 31, 2020.

Send emails to your elected officials now, urging them to include Step 1 product sales relief in a future coronavirus package.

Be sure to personalize your message in the beginning with information about:

  • How many employees you have
  • What sales or promotions to sell Step 1 products have been interrupted
  • How the shutdowns/lack of customers has impacted you
