Relief Bill Passes for Small Businesses - Funds Available Monday, April 27

From Representative Erin Zwiener's Office


On Thursday evening the next COVID-19 relief bill passed the House (and the Senate earlier this week). President Trump signed the bill into law today. As part of this latest relief package, $310 billion in new funds will be allocated for the Paycheck Protection Program, which gives loans to struggling small businesses but ran out of funding over a week ago. The funds will be available Monday, April 27th at 10:30 am EST/9:30 am CST. Below we have prepared the list of documents small businesses can begin to gather. This way, when the funds become available small businesses will be prepared to apply for them.
