Small Business Payroll Protection

Calling Small Business Owners!

Take advantage of our NEW Paycheck Protection Program!

Your business might be eligible for relief funding through our new partnership with Fundbox!  

We are so excited for our partnership with Fundbox! The Small Business Association (SBA) has approved our partner Fundbox as a lender for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

PPP offers small businesses affected by the Coronavirus loans of up to 2.5 times your average monthly payroll costs.  

These loans have a 1% interest rate, and as long as you follow the SBA guidelines, are 100% forgiven by the government.  

PPP funds are first come, first served, so we encourage you to apply with Fundbox as soon as possible.

For more details, check out Fundbox’s blog post. You can also contact their team at (855) 297-6947 or support@fundbox.com if you have any questions.

Pardon the wait as call volumes are high, so wait times may be longer than usual.
