Applications for the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program for businesses with fewer than 500 employees.
The program provides small businesses with funds to pay up to eight weeks of payroll costs including benefits. Funds are provided in the form of loans that will be fully forgiven based on keeping or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels. No collateral or personal guarantees are required and neither the government nor lenders will charge small businesses any fees. Importantly, funding is limited, so applying promptly is advisable.
For more details about the Paycheck Protection Program, visit the Small Business Administration’s program overview. You can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) or other participating federally insured lender, and should consult with your local lender as to whether it is participating in the program.
Taking advantage of small business assistance programs like this can protect an employee’s paycheck, benefits and eligibility for the expanded Family and Medical Leave Act (FMLA).
