Businesses began applying on April 27 for the second round of loans from the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program.

The original round, worth $349 billion, ran out in less than two week. President Donald Trump signed a bill authorizing an additional $310 billion for the program.

The stimulus loans are designed to provide an economic lifeline for small businesses during the COVID-19 crisis. They’re meant to cover up to 10 weeks of payroll expenses, up to a maximum of $10 million.

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.

The new round is expected to go quickly, just like the first. So if you plan to apply, experts advise doing so right away.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
