Friday, April 3rd was opening day of the SBA Paycheck Protection Program – but instead of relief, confusion was rampant, and nonprofits are frustrated. Some banks are adding additional requirements, for example, that your organization already have a loan or credit card with them. Others are declaring that they won't accept loan applications until later in the month. 

In this rapidly changing environment, answers aren't easy to get – and when you get them, something may change the next day. Join us next Thursday, April 9 for a unique opportunity to hear from insiders at the Small Business Administration and ask them questions directly. 

With the news, policies, and relief options changing almost daily, you'll get the most up-to-date information from these two experts in the Administration’s California offices.
