Have questions about 2nd Draw Loans as it applies to cooperatives?  PPP Loan Forgiveness?  Find out the answers to your PPP questions in this Cooperative Learning Network. 

The Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has been an important source of support during the COVID-19 pandemic, but it has led to many implementation questions among cooperatives and the CPAs who serve them. This 60-minute zoom will feature a discussion on 2nd draw loans, loan forgiveness, and updates on the PPP from the perspective of the cooperative community, including patronage considerations. During this session, participants will learn about 2nd draw loans and PPP loan forgiveness, the impact of PPP loan forgiveness on co-ops, and receive relevant updates about the Paycheck Protection Program.
