The Second Round of PPP is Now Open

The PPP was introduced to help small businesses weather the storm of the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the CARES Act, the program provides forgiveness up to the full principal amount of qualifying loans guaranteed under the Paycheck Protection Protection. The PPP provides small businesses with funds to help cover payroll costs, lease and rent payments, and other qualifying expenses.
