Most businesses will qualify for the "PPP" Loan-with-Forgiveness under the CARES Act. Get your paperwork together. Call your banker. Get people back to work. Do these things to rebuild our businesses and our workforce...and our economy. This document has been posted to the kdelta.org website along with the Federal CARES Act stimulus loan/business assistance links and summaries. Repost this. Share it. Call someone who owns a business. We as a regional community will need the infusion of cash/spending to help our economy recover/grow. Businesses need to do this immediately. Banks will be the frontlines to distribute, and they are ramping up. Ask your bank's loan officer how to get started and proceed quickly. If you need financing on a more urgent basis, SBA also, has Economic Industry Disaster Loans that allow for a cash advance. There are tools. Use them, please, and start rebuilding your business and our communities today. Please share/copy-paste this to make sure it gets into the minds, hearts, and hands for all who could benefit. caresguide-us-senate-small-business-guide-1.pdf PDF
