The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act created several loan and grant programs to support small businesses, including law firms and 501(c)(3) nonprofits. Many of our members were fortunate to receive funds under the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program. The PPP program was designed as a forgivable loan. Join us to learn what steps you need to take to get as much of your PPP loan forgiven as possible.

What You Will Learn

  • How to spend your PPP loan to maximize forgiveness
  • How to apply for forgiveness
  • What documentation you’ll need for your application
