Let's do this together - apply for the PPP
The CARES Act offers several programs to help small business people. The Payroll Protection Program (PPP) Loans are intended for small businesses to use to maintain payroll and cover other business expenses during the COVID crisis. All or part of the loan will be forgivable. These loans are available to sole proprietors and self-employed workers.
Helping us out is Elaine Grogan Luttrull, Minerva Financial Arts, an accredited CPA in Columbus, OH. Elaine is a financial counselor whose mission is educating artists in their businesses.
PPP Applications are made through a bank. Applications opened on April 10 for independent contractors. These may be “first come, first serve” although it is possible that additional funds will be appropriated in other bills.
