Join a panel of experts who will explain the Keeping Workers Paid Employment Act section of the overall bill, a $367 billion dollar fund aimed at helping small businesses and nonprofits maintain a steady payroll during this virtual shut down of our economy due to the Covid 19 crisis.

The government’s intentions are clear - they are trying to stem the massive tide of layoffs by providing direct funding to cover company payrolls and health care benefits for an 8 week period. There are a number of details and guidelines, but the bottom line is that if you play by the rules, the bulk of the funds, and potentially ALL the funds you borrow under this program will be forgiven.

In this session we’ll focus on the following:

  • Overview of the bill and how it is intended to help small businesses

  • How the loan program works for different size firms

  • What you have to do to prepare to apply

  • The risks and rewards - understanding the details, what’s forgivable, what’s not

  • What other costs can be delayed under this legislation that will help preserve cash 

  • Audience Q&A
