Eliminating barriers to accessing the Paycheck Protection Program
The SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) provides eligible businesses with access to low interest and partially to fully forgivable loans with no personal guarantee or collateral required. Eligible small businesses and nonprofits can use these funds to help pay business payroll, utilities, and other operating expenses during the COVID-19 pandemic. When the Paycheck Protection Program was first launched, many businesses – particularly those owned by people of color – found themselves unable to access the application process. We are dedicated to helping underrepresented and under-resourced small businesses access resources to keep their workforce employed and navigate COVID-19.
