PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM FOR SMALL BUSINESS IS OPEN!
Included in the CARES Act stimulus is the Paycheck Protection Program, designed to help small business owners cover their employees’ payroll and benefits during the crisis. This program also applies to non-profits, veteran organizations, sole proprietorships, the self-employed, and independent contractors. These loans will be forgiven so long as proceeds are used to cover payroll costs and benefits, and employee compensation levels are maintained (capped at $100,000).
Applications opened April 3 for small businesses and sole proprietorships,
while applications are open for independent contractors and the self-employed
starting April 10.
