    For small business owners struggling to pay rent and make payroll, the federal government’s $284 billion forgivable PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) loan is a lifeline. Participants are eligible for loan forgiveness for the amounts spent on authorized expenses including payroll costs and qualifying non-payroll costs such as operating expenditures, supplier costs, and worker protection.

    This year’s relaunched PPP program is aimed at even smaller businesses, and provides special funding for the service sector, nonprofits, and minority, under-served, veteran, and woman-owned establishments. Businesses that received a first round PPP loan last year may also apply for a second loan if they meet specified requirements.

    Join representatives from the U.S. Small Business Administration; Business Impact NW, a regional CDFI (Community Development Financial Institution); and Banner Bank to learn more about the opportunity, application process, and the frequently generated error messages turning up this round, from additional validation checks put in place to flag potential fraudulent applicants, that could delay processing of your PPP application.
