Purpose: The program is designed to rapidly provide financial assistance to “traditional” small businesses (i.e., those with no more than 100 employees) that have been adversely affected by the current pandemic. Its purpose is to “stop the bleeding” for these firms; it is not to necessarily restore them to their pre-pandemic status.
Funding: $3.5 million of Coronavirus Relief Fund funding (as provided by the CARES Act)
Definition of small business: Business with no more than 100 employees and revenue under $10 million.
