Don’t miss NMSDC and the US Chamber of Commerce (USCC) joint forum that will include a fireside chat with USCC experts on the new stimulus bill, Coronavirus Response and the Relief Supplemental Appropriations Act. Additionally, there will be a panel discussion with bankers and other financial institutions, familiar with the PPP application process, designed to share information and answer questions to assist MBEs with securing a PPP loan.

This forum will provide insights that will:

  • Allow small businesses to take a 1st or 2nd PPP loan;
  • Simplifies PPP loan forgiveness application for loans $150,000 or less;
  • Permits tax deduction of PPP loan expenses;
  • Eliminates payback of the EIDL grant;
  • Extends the COVID-19 paid leave tax credit; and
  • Provides provisions for service industry companies and under-represented entrepreneurs.

The 90-minute forum is slated for January 6th at 2:30 p.m. EST. Don’t allow your questions to go unanswered; we want to hear from you.
