This program, presented by CEO & Founder of New York Grant Company, Ann Kayman, will walk through the nuts and bolts of seeking and applying for funding from the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The program will also discuss other COVID-19 business recovery and relief programs that exist and potential avenues for relief. Lastly, the program will address the rapid rate by which these recovery programs are changing and commonly encountered obstacles. For example, funds from Round 1 ($349 billion) of the PPP were exhausted within a matter of days. Round 2 will likely deplete just as quickly. With all the uncertainty, how can a business or not-for-profit navigate the maze of programs and maximize relief? What is the status of funding, and who is eligible? What does the practitioner or applicant need to know? Beyond federal relief programs, what else is out there to help the private sector with economic recovery? Gain answers to all that and more in this comprehensive one-hour program.
Ann Kayman is an attorney with 35 years of experience and is an expert in disaster relief programs, having assisted thousands of businesses after 9/11. She and her team of experts are working with dozens of businesses and not-for-profits to help them get back on their feet in the wake of COVID-19.
