Federal, State and Local governments have established programs and are in the process of developing additional resources that may provide individuals and small and mid-sized businesses assistance to minimize the unprecedented economic impact of the novel Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19).   

We recommend that you conduct your own research and diligence any such programs that may become available for their respective applicability to your situation or business.   

Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act ("CARES") 

On March 27, 2020 the Federal Government passed the comprehensive CARES Act that provides a number of opportunities that benefit companies and their employees.   We encourage you to review these programs as they may be applicable to your situation or business.   

US Small Business Administration Loans

The CARES Act has created a separate SBA Loan option for the small businesses affected by the Coronavirus.  This new CARES created loan supplements for the pre-existing SBA economic injury disaster loan (EIDL) loan program providing businesses the opportunity to apply to both, but will require you to select the one that is best suited for your business.
