Paycheck Protection Program

The Small Business Administration (SBA) just released another round of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), designed to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the current COVID-19 crisis and economic downturn. The Paycheck Protection Program provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses who qualify. More importantly, these loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payroll after the crisis is over. 

For additional information about this program, and how the loans can be forgiven, please see the links below.
