The latest stimulus package offers new funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) with expanded eligibility to include more 501(c)(6) nonprofits. New provisions extend greater flexibility on how funds can be used to sustain eligible economic development organizations, businesses, and other entities. But you don’t have to start from scratch — your peers at 501(c)6 organizations who have already participated in the PPP can help you. In this webinar, representatives from IEDC and OneColumbus will discuss the PPP, including their own lessons learned and keys to success from application to submitting for loan forgiveness.
