Second Round for the Paycheck Protection Program
This message is being sent as a courtesy
to our collaborative partner, Early Learning NH.
In anticipation of the second round of funding for the Paycheck Protection Program going live on Monday, the Boston Fed has created a  web page  with resources for New England smaller businesses including nonprofits to aid them in applying to this program. It is anticipated that the second round of funding will run out quickly, and that it is essential that applicants connect with a financial institution able to process their PPP loan immediately.
The resource page includes:
  • An info sheet describing the program
  • Links to other resources including program information and loan applications in 19 languages
  •  A list of technical assistance providers indicating they are able to help small businesses/nonprofits apply for the PPP
  • A list of financial institutions that are able to process PPP loans for non-customers
You can visit the page here:  https://www.bostonfed.org/in-the-region/covid-19-resources/paycheck-protection-program.aspx . The TA providers and FI lists will be updated as new organizations are identified, so please check back regularly in the coming days.

ALL child care businesses can qualify - nonprofit or privately-owned. If you need assistance asap, please contact Julie McConnell at  info@earlylearningnh.org  or leave a message on their voicemail at 226-7900. Nonprofit child care programs, as well as other nonprofits, can also get one-on-one help from the NH Center for Nonprofits:  https://www.nhnonprofits.org/page/coronavirus-covid-19-resources-nonprofits.

Finally, to make it easier to identify whether one of the financial institutions on the list may be able to help a particular small business, below is a list of their branch locations below. Please see the full list on the website for contact information.
