Free Money from the US Government

The second stimulus bill and American Rescue Plan Act of 2021 (ARPA) enacted into law in December 2020 and March 2021, respectively, 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 employers may have received.

This is free money if you qualify that does not have to be paid back. Time is of the essence to see if you qualify, since it’s unknown how long the US government will fund this program. 

Find out the details during this free one-hour SCORE workshop at 10 am on August 15.
