Small businesses are looking for an economic lifeline as a result of losses due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They’ll now have several loan programs they may be able to tap for help, thanks to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed into law March 27, 2020. The $2 trillion bill offers $349 billion in specific relief for small businesses — including loan forgiveness. This historic bill also adds to the already-existing Small Business Administration (SBA) disaster loan program available at low interest rates. Join this webinar to learn about these loan programs as you consider these options for your business.


  • Classify the SBA loan options available to small businesses, including the Payment Protection Program and Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program.
  • Interpret the eligibility for the loans and the terms of the different loan programs.
  • Make use of guidance for preparing your loan application(s) and ensuring approval.
