Host and SBDC director, Kelly Bearden provides updates on the Paycheck Protection Program [PPP], Restaurant Revitalization Fund and Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Program. 

Underserved businesses, including women-, minority- and veteran-owned, can submit applications for the remaining $8 billion in the Paycheck Protection Program [PPP] through May 31. Portals to both the $28.6 billion Restaurant Revitalization Fund [RRF] and the $16 billion Shuttered Venue Operators Grant Program remain open, but will close once all funds are awarded. 

Additional topics include PPP forgiveness tracking and preparation, the Employee Retention Tax Credit, recent changes to the EIDL program including the Supplemental Targeted Advance, the governor’s proposed $1.5 billion addition to the California Relief Grant Program and more. 

This marks the 62nd in the weekly “Webinar Wednesday” series that provides pandemic relief updates on available federal, state, and local funding options, tax credit programs, employee programs, and other opportunities helpful to employers and business owners.
