Paycheck Protection Program Loans and Recordkeeping

Paycheck Protection Program Loans and Recordkeeping

New! Best Practices and Forgiveness Information and Webinar

On March 31, the application for the CARES ACT, Payroll Protection Program was posted on the Treasury Department’s website. The application requires much less information than tthe Small Business Administration (SBA) typically requires. The most cumbersome part of the application is the payroll calculation.
Beginning April 3, 2020, SBA approved financial institutions will begin accepting applications. Starting April 10, 2020, independent contractors and self-employed individuals can apply. We encourage interested churches to apply as soon as possible due to the funding cap.
