Paycheck Protection Program Webinar

Have you heard?! There is a new COVID relief package!

A Message From…

unnamed
Join Me for a Paycheck Protection Program Webinar for Small Businesses and Non-Profits!
 
Dear Neighbor, I hope your new year is off to a good start and that you are entering 2021 healthy and safe. Before we embarked on the new year, Congress passed another COVID relief package which I was proud to help negotiate through my Problem Solvers Caucus. This package included a new round of the Paycheck Protection Program with hundreds of millions in funds allotted for small businesses and non-profits still struggling with the economic setbacks from the COVID-19 pandemic. To answer your questions about this new round of relief, or perhaps your questions regarding loan forgiveness applications from the first round, I invite you to join me on Tuesday, January 19th from 8:00am PST to 9:30am PST for a small business webinar with representatives from the Small Business Administration and the Small Business Development Center.
