Great Q&A on small business loan disaster relief programs this week! JF Law Firm Business and Real Estate Lawyer Romy Jurado and SBA Branch Manager Robert J. Piechota gave small business owners insights and tips to help them survive and thrive the COVID19 epidemic.
We spoke about the different relief programs available (EIDL and PPP) that can become forgivable loans, employee/employer rights, things to look out for and much more.
- Disaster relief small business loans qualify to become “FORGIVABLE”
- Apply for ALL available funds, it won’t negatively impact your opportunities.
- Don’t go at it alone, meet with U.S. Small Business Administration, local small business development center or SCORE Mentors for support.
- Avoid scams! Applications are FREE.
- Your credit score doesn’t impact you, it’s the why that will.
- Employees qualify for partial or full unemployment even if they weren’t fully laid off.
- If you applied for EIDL before Monday, March 30, 2020, you’ll need to reapply again to get the full benefits offered now.
