Local residents and business owners got the edge on information regarding the second stimulus.
Dozens of people registered and logged on to this morning’s free webinar called ‘Ask the Expert: Second Stimulus Update” with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
It’s one of several free webinars hosted by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce and open to anyone who wants to sign up for the online seminars.
Congress recently signed a new round of paycheck protection program, or PPP, for $285 billion overall to support small businesses, just one of many topics addressed at today’s free online seminar. Office of Congressional Public Affairs Director Moore Hallmark said, “Next up is the second draw of the PPP loan, which is a forgivable loan up to $2-million dollars. It has all the same features of the original PPP loan program, but it’s a little more targeted toward small business who were hit the hardest, and who have exhausted their first run of PPP loan.”
There are more free webinars hosted by the Mississippi Gulf Coast Chamber of Commerce coming up including one January 26th with Cindy Hanson with Memorial Hospital will be featured to talk about the COVID-19 vaccine.
