Paycheck Protection Program Basics: What to Know About PPP Loans and Forgiveness

The CARES Act authorized the Small Business Administration to make billions of dollars of forgivable loans to small businesses for payroll and other expenses.  Known as the Paycheck Protection Program (or “PPP”), these loans were intended to help small businesses survive the economic downturn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic.  Though PPP has experienced a few bumps in the road, funds remain available and may be a viable option for many small businesses.

This webinar will provide a basic introduction into the potential benefit of the Paycheck Protection Program, including:
•             Who Qualifies For PPP Loans
•             How Loan Forgiveness Works
•             Recent Updates to PPP
•             Factors to Consider When Looking at PPP

This webinar is presented by PIAG's employment law partner, Jackson Lewis P.C.
