After you have navigated these various programs you may need the help of a financial professional.

CPA’s are trained to understand complex business funding arrangements and would also be a great resource in understanding which program might be best.  

I would suggest checking out the American Institute of CPA’s (AICPA) website as well.

They have created a separate “Coronavirus (COVID-19) resource center” that gives you access to the most up-to-date information, news, and tools to help you navigate the COVID-19 pandemic.

As discussed above the most popular program currently under discussion through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) is the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

 It wasdesigned to provide access to funding so businesses can keep paying their employees and other expenses such as health insurance premiums, rent or mortgage payments and utilities.

The AICPA also designed a very robust website designed to help. This important financial relief is designed to help small businesses return to being fully operational quicker once conditions improve.
