PPP Updates

Due to technical issues, the SBA has temporarily suspended the Shuttered Venues Operator Grant (SVOG) application portal. 

With the passing of the most recent Covid-19 relief bill $7.25 billion has been added to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Additionally, the deadline for submitting an application has been extended to May 31, 2021. Additional funds have also been added to the  Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program.

The SBA has extended the deferment period for all disaster loans received in 2020 or 2021, including the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) until 2022.
