Small Comics Businesses: Get Your Payroll Protection Program Application In Now!

A new round of funding for the Payroll Protection Program was passed by Congress this week and is expected to be signed into law imminently. The new package allocates another $250 billion to the PPP, and $60 billion for $10,000 emergency grants that fund within days. This round of aid is expected to be depleted in days. For retailers, publishers, and other small comics businesses who haven’t yet secured funding, now is the time to get your application in.

Here are CBLDF’s tools to help you apply for your loan. Please share it with your local retailer and any other business who can benefit from these forgivable government loans.
