A Message and Documents About Final SBA Guidance from the Office of Sen. James Lankford

The Small Business Administration has finalized the guidance for non-profit organizations, including faith-based organizations and houses of worship which are attached to this e-mail.  
There have been many questions about the Small Business Administration program designed to pay the payroll of small businesses around the country, including non-profits and faith based non-profits. The Payroll Protection Program will pay the payroll costs for your non-profit for eight weeks. This evening, the Small Business Administration released specific guidance for all 501©(3) organizations in the country. We have attached the Small Business Administration information, (the rule and the FAQ document) the application for the Payroll Protection Program and a fact sheet we have created to help people understand the program.  
Please feel free to contact our offic e with any questions you may have on this program.  You should apply for this grant at your local bank as soon as possible, since it will be given on a first come, first served basis.    

As you read through the documents, please reach out if you have any questions.
Please share this email and attached resources.  We do not want any non-profit to miss out on vital financial support because they did not know about the Payroll Protection Program.  

Thank you for serving people in our community so faithfully. 


OKCNP Announces SBA Loan Assistance Program
OKLAHOMA CITY - The Oklahoma Center for Nonprofits has created a new program to help nonprofit organizations navigate the application process for Small Business Administration loan programs.

"Thanks to the generosity of a number of funders, we have begun a FREE consulting program for organizations needing assistance applying for loans with the Small Business Association," Marnie Taylor, President and CEO said. "Beginning today, we have dedicated three of our staff consultants to this new program so that organizations can get help with the loan processes. Consultants can also provide assistance around the financial planning needs nonprofits will need alongside these loans, as well as assistance with the reporting."

The program will run indefinitely so that organizations have access to the consulting while the programs are still available.

Nonprofits needing assistance may contact:

Jerry Wright ( jwright@okcnp.org )
DJ Thompson ( djthompson@okcnp.org )
