Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP) Explained

April 9, 2020

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act created a new forgivable funding program, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), for employers with 500 employees or less. The goal of the PPP is to keep you and your employees intact during this unprecedented time. Join the ABC this Thursday to learn more about how this program can help your business. While we encourage small businesses in the biogas industry to join, this webinar applies to all small businesses potentially affected by COVID-19. The PPP applies to both for-profit and non-profit organizations.
