2.     LET CONGRESS KNOW SMALL BUSINESS OWNERS NEED MORE FUNDING


Since Friday, April 3, small businesses have been applying for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) forgivable loans authorized under the CARES Act that was enacted on March 27.

Business owners have experienced setbacks while applying for the PPP forgivable loans and the Small Business Administration (SBA) Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDLs) and Emergency Grants. Further appropriations and improvements to the PPP are needed as well as increased access to EIDLs and Emergency Grants.

Congress needs to hear from you NOW. Tell them your experience applying for PPPL and EIDLs and how they need to improve and expand these programs immediately.

Act NOW and urge your Senators and Representative to improve and expand access to the PPP, EIDLs, and Emergency Grants.
