SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)



The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses. Importantly, these loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payrolls afterward.

SBG Funding is working hard to help you protect the business you’ve built, and the families it supports. We are moving quickly to give you access to the Paycheck Protection Program loan under the new federal legislation. This loan can be used to cover payroll costs and other expenses during these difficult times.
