UPDATED APRIL 3 AT 11:36 AM
In this unprecedented time, the Greater Arlington Chamber of Commerce is working to provide accurate and up-to-date materials to members and will continue to update this page with additional resources.
CARES Act Passed and Signed
President Trump signed the CARES Act on Friday Providing Emergency Payroll Assistance.
The CARES Act has approved $350 billion in emergency loans for small businesses to help them keep workers employed. In fact, if small businesses maintain or later restore their payrolls, they may not have to repay some — or possibly any — of the loan. We encourage you to utilize the US Chamber's Coronavirus Emergency Loans Small Business Guide and Checklist to help answer common questions and navigate the process.
