Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Support Service
As part of ARA's efforts to assist ARA members during the COVID-19 crisis, ARA developed a relationship with Georgetown Capital Advisors to provide much-needed support to ARA member companies seeking funding under the Small Business Administration's (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
With the surge in interest and the first-of-its-kind nature of the program there has been significant confusion about the process for both applicants and lenders. Georgetown Capital Advisors provides no-fee support for small businesses seeking PPP loans.

The program provides forgivable loans of up to $10 million to retain employees, pay for mortgage interest, rent, utility and certain other operational costs. Loans are for a 2 year term at a rate of 1%. There is a 6-month grace period for the first payment. Loan recipients who abide by the terms and conditions can request the loan be forgiven before the first payment is due.
Loans are issued by lending institutions approved by SBA and guaranteed by the government. Additionally, in the law creating the program Congress prohibited fees being charged to borrowers. So, unlike conventional loans, all fees associated with the origination and processing of PPP loans are paid by the government.
