COVID-19 RESOURCES AND FINANCIAL RELIEF FOR SMALL BUSINESSES

Business Resources Banner

As the COVID-19 coronavirus spreads through communities, state and city governments have issued shelter-in-place guidelines and closed non-essential businesses in order to minimize person-to-person contact. While these guidelines are trying to contain the outbreak and the impending public health crisis, they are also leading to negative economic consequences. The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law on March 27, 2020, and released additional funds, providing some tax relief, and employee benefits. The Coronavirus Response and Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act of 2021 re-opened the Paycheck Protection Program through March 31, 2021.
