If you think it’s too late to apply for the CARES Act loans, think again. “CARES Act 2.0” is in the works as we speak and will likely appropriate more relief funds for nonprofits and small businesses. There’s still time to apply for the PPP (Payroll Protection Program), EIDL (Economic Injury Disaster Loan) and Mid-Size Business loans and we encourage you to do so.

Need a helping hand deciding whether to apply for the PPP or EIDL or both?  Want help with the application process?
