Coronavirus and Business text written on blackboard. COVID-19 - Wuhan Novel Coronavirus pneumonia. Chalk board with coffee and mobile phone for the Grand Rapids Lawyer Van Den Heuvel.As you’re probably aware, the government has recently taken steps to help businesses financially impacted by the COVID-19 outbreak. The Van Den Heuvel Law Office has reached out to our local SBA representative to learn more about these programs, and we want to share some of the highlights. Please note that the Van Den Heuvel Law Office is not affiliated with these programs in any way. We simply feel these resources are important for businesses that have been affected, and we want to be sure you’re aware of them and to know that we are here to assist with questions that may arise.

PPP Program Summary

  • The loan will be fully forgiven as long as:
    • the funds are used to cover qualifying expenses, and
    • the employer maintains or quickly rehires their current workforce and maintains current salaries.
  • Payments are deferred for six months.
  • Neither the government nor lenders will charge small businesses any fees.
  • No collateral or personal guarantees are required.
  • Any small business or private non-profit organization with less than 500 employees can apply.

How Can I Apply?

You can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender, any participating federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, or Farm Credit System. Additional lenders are being added, so check with your local lender to see if they are participating.
