Assistance for Small Businesses

UPDATE: The SBA will resume processing Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) applications because it has received additional funding. Check your bank or credit union for additional guidance on your PPP application.

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) prioritizes millions of Americans employed by small businesses by authorizing up to $349 billion toward job retention and certain other expenses. If you're interested in applying for a loan through the Paycheck Protection Program, please check with your attorney or accountant and reach out to an SBA approved lender (usually a local bank or credit union) for more information.
