Join us on Thursday, January 14, 2021 for a one (1) hour Webcast where we will review the third round of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding. We will review the application rules for new borrowers and certain existing PPP borrowers. (First Draw and Second Draw PPP loans are available.) We will also have a short presentation on updates to the Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program.

At this webcast you will learn:
• Eligibility Requirements
• What the funds can be used for
• What forms are required
• How the loan forgiveness works, and….
… get your questions answered so that you have all the information you need to apply.

Frank De Rego, Jr., Director of Business Development Projects, MEDB and Wayne Wong, Director of the Hawaii Small Business Development Center (SBDC) will guide you through the process.

This webcast is part of our ongoing series – the COVID-19 Business Assistance Series, sponsored by the County of Maui, aimed at helping our small businesses navigate the resources available to them, with clear step-by-step instructions.

No special software needed to view. You can watch and participate on your web browser on any device. We wanted to make sure it was easy for you to access this important information.
