APPLY FOR THE PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM TODAY – funds are available, but limited. Read below to find out more.

President Donald Trump recently signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act into law, making more than $2.2 trillion available to help American businesses, employees, and their families. Restaurant owners who have been impacted by COVID-19 now have several relief options available to them from the federal government. PAR is here to help you navigate the resources and solutions that are right for your restaurant every step of the way.

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has the following benefits:

  • forgivable loans up to $10 million for small businesses that maintain employees and comply with the CARES Act
  • no SBA authorization required, thanks to an expedited application and closing process from SBA-approved lenders
  • no guarantee fees, credit elsewhere tests, collateral requirements, or prepayment penalties
  • deferred payments for 6 to 12 months

Use this tool to find eligible lenders near you and join our webinar at 4:30 PM EST today to learn more.
