Steps you can take to protect your business as PPP deadline approaches

Many small businesses felt the economic impact of the coronavirus, including Tiki Tails and Fort Myers Brewing Company in Cape Coral.

Both of these companies along with other small businesses took advantage of the Personal Protection Program loan benefits. The program was designed to assist small businesses with keeping employees on the payroll.

The deadline to apply for those benefits is this Saturday, August 8. The original deadline was June 30th but it was extended due to the ongoing status of the pandemic.

If you’ve already received your PPP loan, the next step for you is the loan forgiveness application which is already available.
