Paycheck Protection Program application deadline extended to Aug. 8

Washington — Dentists have until Aug. 8 to apply for the Paycheck Protection Program after President Donald Trump signed the bill into law July 4.

The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan established by the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep or rehire their workers.

All of the ADA’s Small Business Administration loan resources can be found on the ADA Dental Practice resources website, including links to apply for a Paycheck Protection Program loan.
