Government Relief for Paying Employees

The Paycheck Protection Program prioritizes millions of Americans employed by small businesses by directing $349 billion towards job retention and business operating expenses. The Program provides an incentive for small businesses (<500 employees)  to keep their workers on payroll by providing loans up to $10 million for payroll and certain other expenses. If employees are kept on payroll for eight weeks, SBA will forgive the portion of the loans used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities, and up to 100 percent of the loan is forgivable.
