REMOTE ONLY | Understanding the CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

Event Description

Due to the current situation, this program is REMOTE-ONLY participation. There will be NO in-person attendance. 

Deadline to Register: April 20, 2020 (by 12:00 pm)

Please join us for an interactive discussion of the CARES Act PPP loan program.  For employers that continue to retain and pay their employees at pre-COVID levels, the SBA can provide a federally-backed, fully forgivable loan for up to 2.5 times average monthly payroll costs through June 30.  The PPP loan program is available to businesses with fewer than 500 employees, nonprofits and self-employed individuals.  Due to the hastiness in which this program was implemented, many questions remain.
