Federal Financial Assistance Resources
Small businesses are facing an unprecedented economic disruption due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The President has signed into law the CARES Act, which provides financial relief for American workers and small businesses through several new temporary programs to address the COVID-19 outbreak. The following programs are managed by the Small Business Administration:
- Paycheck Protection Program (PPP): This loan program provides loan forgiveness for retaining employees by temporarily expanding the traditional SBA 7(a) loan program.
- Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) and Loan Advance: This loan advance will provide up to $10,000 of economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing temporary difficulties.
- SBA Express Bridge Loans: Enables small businesses who currently have a business relationship with an SBA Express Lender to access up to $25,000 quickly.
- SBA Debt Relief: The SBA is providing a financial reprieve to small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
