Coronavirus Loan Guide to Help Small Businesses
As we shared last week, the U.S. Chamber has created a  guide  to help small businesses, independent contractors, gig economy workers and other qualifying individuals prepare to file for a coronavirus relief loan under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Our hope is that this guide will prove to be a valuable resource for you and your members as you begin to take the necessary steps towards accessing the fund to keep workers on the payroll during this disruptive period.
NEW: The U.S. Chamber's Coronavirus Emergency Loans Small Business Guide and Checklist is also now available for download in Spanish by visiting here .
In addition to the guide, we've compiled an interactive map to show the aid available on a state-by-state basis. To view the interactive map, please click here .
