The stimulus bill signed into law by President Donald Trump last week includes $350 billion in loans for small businesses.

The loan provisions, known as the Paycheck Protection Program, are part of an overall relief package worth $2 trillion, Inc. notes. The goal is to provide individuals and businesses an economic lifeline during the COVID-19 crisis.

The loans are meant to cover up to 10 weeks of payroll expenses, up to a maximum of $10 million.  The money could be available within two weeks.

Inc. notes that the loans “can be converted into forgivable grants so long as the company doesn’t lay off employees.”

More details of the program are available here.

Wilkerson Takes the Worry Out of Closing

MSG Jewelers has always treated its customers like family. When owner Mike George decided to retire and close the doors of his St. Louis, Missouri jewelry store, he selected a company to manage his going-out-of-business sale that treats its customers like family, too. That’s why he chose Wilkerson. “Wilkerson was able to do all the things that we needed,” says George. In the end, the bittersweet store closing was so much easier with Wilkerson at the helm. From marketing to pricing to inventory, Wilkerson does it all. “It’s a package deal,” says George.
