The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has been a lifesaver for small businesses. The latest legislation has provided a second round and even allowed for the amendment of the first round under the appropriate circumstances.
A supplemental program known as the Restaurant Revitalization Act that provides $28.6 billion directed specifically to restaurants has passed and the SBA portal is due to open on Monday May 3 for Women and Minority Owned (MWBE) businesses, and May 24 for all others.

Distribution is on a first come basis. You need to act now if you’re going to get your share of these funds. Contact Eric A. Browndorf at email@example.com or Jarad K.
