You should continue to monitor programs being offered for you! The Paycheck Protection Program, Employee Retention Tax Credit and Economic Injury Disaster Loan are available, but you should be aware of how they interact with one another.

The Employee Retention Tax Credit is for employees who are closed, partially closed or experiencing significant revenue losses as a result of COVID-19. Employers who receive a PPP loan are not eligible for a tax credit. Download the guide here.
