Apply Now: Paycheck Protection Program
The CARES Act allocated $350 billion via the Paycheck Protection Program to help small businesses keep workers employed during the Coronavirus pandemic. The loans in this program are backed by the U.S. Small Business Administration through local lenders. The funds for this are allocated on a first come, first service basis and they are expected to go quickly, as in the first couple of days, so the time to apply is now.
