Special COVID-19 Edition: Small Business Access to the Paycheck Protection Program


The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) was created to help small businesses keep their workforce employed during the COVID-19 crisis. To help small business borrowers determine if the PPP is a good option for them, The Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland is hosting a webinar that will provide guidance on accessing the program, the application process, and other details about the loan terms. Representatives from the Small Business Administration, a regional economic development organization, and community development financial institution will walk attendees through the PPP.
