Government action & disaster assistance

Federal, state and local governments are undertaking numerous actions and offering several programs to assist small businesses with the direct and indirect effects of COVID-19 on their businesses. Many financial institutions and private parties are providing financial assistance as well.


Applying for the CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

Per U.S. Treasury guidelines, your business can apply through any existing Small Business Association lender or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating. You should consult with your current lender as to whether it is participating. Visit for a list of lenders. 

If you are not able to find success through your current financial institutions, Our partner, BlueVine, is ready to support your business with funding through the program.
