Small business owners can apply for up to $10M in federal assistance
Small business owners across the country with fewer than 500 employees can apply for up to $10 million in federal assistance through banks or lending institutions. Businesses can use the loan to cover payroll expenses beginning March 1, 2020, so businesses that laid off employees in the last few weeks can re-hire their workforce, and businesses who kept people on staff will not be forced to lay off employees. The loan amount is also capped at 2.5-times an employer’s monthly payroll or $10 million, whichever is less. Money that isn’t used for payroll can be used for other expenses like paying rent or a mortgage. For additional information, please visit the Small Business Administration Paycheck Protection Program or read additional information on the PPP from our partners at the Economic Development Commission of Florida's Space CoastUtilize these helpful links to learn more:
