COVID-19 Resource Center &

Application Assistance

Small businesses have been crippled by mandatory closures required to slow the spread of the Coronavirus (COVID-19). Fortunately, there are a growing number of resources and relief programs to fall back on. With the passage of the CARES Act (COVID-19 Stimulus Package), there are two loans available to small businesses.

Paycheck Protection Program

Economic Injury Disaster Loan

We are here to guide you through the application process, loan calculation, compliance, and advisory during this difficult time. 

Paycheck Protection Program

On Friday, April 3rd, the Small Business Administration, in partnership with local banks, began accepting applications for the Paycheck Protection Program which is a potentially forgivable loan specifically to be used to cover 8 weeks of payroll, rent, utilities, and interest costs. The funds from this loan are intended to flow quickly to borrowers and require no collateral or personal guarantees.

Economic Injury Disaster Loan

The second SBA Loan available is the Economic Injury Disaster Loan. However, we advise that if you are interested and in need, first apply for the PPP loan. The requirements to qualify for the EIDL are similar to a standard SBA loan, so it will require more effort while the PPP Loan program is designed to have a low threshold for approval with the intention of rushing funds to small businesses.

We are here to help you successfully navigate the unprecedented economic challenges you face and get your business back to business as quickly as possible.
