Paycheck Protection Program

The Paycheck Protection Program is a Small Business Administration loan program aimed at helping small businesses who have been impacted by COVID-19 by providing funds for wages, rent, utilities and other eligible expenses.  All or a portion of the loan may be forgiven depending on how the funds are used.
