Falls Church Business News & Notes: April 2 – 8, 2020
Info on Paycheck Protection Program Now Available
The U.S. Treasury Department now has information on the CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program, including an application, available online. The program provides small businesses, including charitable nonprofit organizations, with a loan that can convert to a grant, providing the terms are met. The purpose is to keep employees on the payroll but funds can also be used to cover rent, utilities, and interest, as well as payroll.
Applications for small businesses and sole proprietors will be accepted starting April 3 while applications from independent contractors and self-employed individuals will be accepted starting April 10.
