CORONAVIRUS EMERGENCY LOANS SMALL BUSINESS GUIDE AND CHECKLIST

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program, the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses who maintain their payroll during this emergency.

Importantly, these loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payrolls afterward.

The administration soon will release more details including the list of lenders offering loans under the program. In the meantime, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has issued this guide to help small businesses and self-employed individuals prepare to file for a loan.

The Bellevue Harpeth Chamber is here to help you through this incredibly challenging time.

This site is designed to help you take steps to care for your team, create and deploy a contingency plan, and provide resources for business financial relief.

As the situation regarding COVID-19 (coronavirus) continues to evolve, the Bellevue Harpeth Chamber leadership team is monitoring the COVID-19 outbreak. We are aware of the recently confirmed cases in the region.  We encourage anyone who is sick to avoid contact with others and stay home. Thank you for your partnership as we all try to keep our community safe and healthy during this global challenge.
