WASHINGTON—The U.S. Small Business Administration, in consultation with the Treasury
Department, today released a simpler loan forgiveness application for Paycheck Protection
Program (PPP) loans of $50,000 or less. This action streamlines the PPP forgiveness process to
provide financial and administrative relief to America’s smallest businesses while also ensuring
sound stewardship of taxpayer dollars.
To extend a helping hand to small businesses suffering from the impacts of the coronavirus pandemic, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce Foundation – in partnership with Vistaprint and a coalition of supporting companies, foundations, and philanthropic donors – is working to provide financial relief through the Save Small Business Fund. This fund is a key pillar of the U.S. Chamber’s Save Small Business Initiative.
The Fund is providing $5,000 in short-term relief to employers across the United States, including chambers of commerce. These one-time supplemental cash grants are for businesses that have between three and 20 employees and operate in an economically vulnerable community (you can search eligibility by zip code here).
The grant application will go live on Monday, April 20 at 3:00 PM ET / 2:00 PM CT. To learn more about the Save Small Business Fund and to apply for a grant, visit savesmallbusiness.com.
