Reminder: Funding Still Available for the Paycheck Protection Program

PPP Coronavirus Loans Icon


The U.S. Small Business Administration's (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan helps businesses keep their workforce employed during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. The PPP is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities. You should consult with your local lender as to whether it is participating in the program. Funding is still available. Apply today through a participating lender.
