Important Paycheck Protection Update
We are now accepting applications for Paycheck Protection loans. The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) provides loans to help businesses keep their workforce employed during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. First Draw Loans are for first time program participants. Second Draw Loans are for certain businesses who have previously received a PPP loan. The second round of PPP funds is more targeted; in that businesses will be required to show a demonstrated loss of gross revenues by 25% due to COVID-19.
If you have previously received a PPP loan:

Michigan's Work Share Program
Michigan’s Work Share program allows employers to restart their business and bring employees back from unemployment. Employers can bring employees back with reduced hours - while employees collect partial unemployment benefits to make up a portion of the lost wages. Employers can also retain their current workforce and are given the flexibility to choose which of their employees are part of a Work Share plan.
