Timothy J. Cunningham, David A. Weinstein and Frances A. McElhill to Present Alliance for Strong Families and Communities’ Webinar, “What Nonprofits Need to Know for Navigating the SBA PPP Loan Program Forgiveness Application”

Partners Timothy J. Cunningham, David A. Weinstein and Frances A. McElhill will present Alliance for Strong Families and Communities’ Webinar, “What Nonprofits Need to Know for Navigating the SBA PPP Loan Program Forgiveness Application” on Friday, May 29th.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) just issued the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan forgiveness application and related instructions. PPP borrowers will be required to complete this application and submit it to their lenders (or the lender servicing the PPP loan) to be considered for total or partial loan forgiveness. Understanding the application process, correctly performing the necessary calculations, and maintaining required supporting documentation is critical to maximizing loan forgiveness for you and your nonprofit.

During this webinar, members of Archer’s COVID-19 Taskforce will discuss steps your organization needs to take to properly apply for PPP loan forgiveness.
