WJR Business Beat with Jeff Sloan: SBA Paycheck Protection Program (Episode 25)

Today, the federal government opens the application period for the Paycheck Protection Program, an SBA 7(a) loan that helps businesses keep their workforce employed during the COVID-19 crisis.

On this morning’s WJR Business Beat, Jeff encourages struggling small business owners to apply, as the funding is on a first come, first served basis.

Small businesses with fewer than 500 employees that have been directly impacted by the coronavirus crisis may apply for this funding, at a one percent interest rate with no payments due for the first six months.
