Current COVID-19 Relief Resources for Businesses LOOK BELOW

SBA
On Friday, April 3, the SBA opened up the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). This program makes up to $349 billion available in forgivable loans to help small businesses, sole proprietors, independent contractors and nonprofits meet payroll, and cover mortgage interest, rent, and other expenses. Visit this fact sheet for more information.
This loan advance will provide up to $10,000 of economic relief to businesses that are currently experiencing temporary difficulties. This program is for any small business with less than 500 employees (including sole proprietorships, independent contractors and self-employed persons), private non-profit organization or 501(c)(19) veterans organization affected by COVID-19.
These loans enable small businesses who currently have a business relationship with an SBA Express Lender to access up to $25,000 quickly.
This resource provides financial reprieve to small businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic.
USDA
This page primarily provides information on USDA Service Centers and the continued support of farmers and ranchers through the Farm Service Agency, Natural Resources Conservation Service, and other USDA agencies.
USDA Rural Development has $1 billion in lending authority now available through the Business and Industry Loan Guarantee Program, which provides much-needed financing to business owners that might not be able to qualify for a loan on their own.
