We are committed to supporting our business owners and the community during this uncertain time by offering assistance and sharing important information that could be beneficial to you.

On Friday, March 27, 2020, Congress passed a $2 trillion federal stimulus package which includes the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Among many other provisions, the CARES Act features a Paycheck Protection Program which is designed to assist businesses with certain expenses.

We are here to help your business understand the CARES Act with videos, articles, and conference calls, to break down the new regulation with a focus on the Paycheck Protection Program.
