Do You Qualify for Free Money from the U.S. Government?

The second stimulus bill enacted into law on December 27, 2020 and the American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) enacted into law on March 11, 2021 included significant enhancements to the Employee Retention Credit (ERC).

The ERC allows qualified employers to receive significant dollars back from the United States government. This money is in addition to the PPP money that employer may have received. This is free money if you qualify that does not have to be paid back.

On Wednesday, November 16 at 10 am, SCORE will host a free webinar that will help you learn if you qualify. Time is of the essence to see if you qualify, since it’s unknown how long the U.S. government will fund this program.
