COVID-19 Response

Are you a small business who have been affected by COVID-19? If so, we are here to help!

THERE IS MORE FUNDING ON THE WAY!

Although the first round of funds passed through the CARES Act were exhausted quickly, there is more where that came from. As of Thursday, April 24, 2020 another $484 billion was approved to assist small businesses and replenish the Paycheck Protection Progarm (PPP) and Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL)
 

Economic Injury Development Loan (EIDL)

  •  a loan that serves as an emergency advance for up to $10,000 of economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing financial difficulties.
  •  can help you meet necessary financial obligations that your business or private, non-profit organization could have met had the disaster not occurred.
  • EIDLs do not replace lost sales or revenue.
  • To be eligible, your businesses must have sustained economic injury and be located in a disaster declared county or contiguous county.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

  • All loan terms will be for the same for everyone.

Loan payments will be deferred for 6 months
