The next round of US Small Business Administration Payroll Protection Program (PPP) will open on Monday. The Payroll Protection Program provides forgivable emergency loans. There have been several updates to the original PPP terms over the past months. The latest round of PPP adds more eligible forgivable expenses, so more small businesses, including sole proprietors, can take advantage of this relief.
The Enterprise Center has limited time to help businesses like yours, so get ready to apply TODAY! We hope you will join this free virtual training session to learn how to help businesses prepare their PPP applications. See below for the criteria.
