Paycheck Protection Program Resumes Today

The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. The SBA will resume accepting Paycheck Protection Program applications from participating lenders on Monday, April 27, 2020 at 10:30am EDT.  Apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating. Other regulated lenders will be available to make these loans once they are approved and enrolled in the program. Consult with your local lender as to whether it is participating in the program.  Visit the US Small Business Administration for more information. 

Our Resource Page  is available 24/7 to help guide you and keep you informed.  

Please don't hesitate to reach out to any of the Chamber staff if you have any comments or questions. We're here for you, and we take that seriously! 

Thank you for everything you're doing in your organizations and in the community to keep everyone safe and healthy.

Let Your Voice Be Heard

During these challenging times, it's important to share what's working and what's not when it comes to the Covid-19 resources that are out there. Nothing is perfect, but things can't be improved if our officials don't know where the problem areas are. 

Provide your input by completing this  Impact Survey, prepared by the Town of Exeter Economic Development Department. By providing this feedback, you're giving your local officials a better understanding of where the true pain points are for your business so they can encourage our representatives to create the most useful tools for our community. 

Please Note: The survey is not exclusive to Exeter businesses.
