The good news is that these aren’t CARES Act dollars, so those who received PPP or EIDL or other local grants can still apply.
We are just learning about the ins and outs of the program, but wanted to get the information to all of you as soon as possible. It seems like there are a lot of details still forthcoming.

Prepared by the US Chamber of Commerce
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act allocated $350 billion to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses.
Importantly, these loans may be forgiven if borrowers maintain their payrolls during the crisis or restore their payrolls afterward.
The administration has released initial guidelines; they are available at www.treasury.gov. The U.S. Chamber of Commerce has issued this guide to help small businesses and self-employed individuals check eligibility and prepare to file for a loan.
Small businesses and sole proprietors can begin applying on April 3. Independent contractors and self-employed individuals can apply beginning on April 10.

“Small and midsize employers can claim two new refundable payroll tax credits to reimburse them, dollar-for-dollar, for the cost of providing employee leave related to the COVID-19 outbreak.
Businesses with less than 500 employees can get funds to provide employees with paid leave, either for the employee’s own health needs or to care for family members.
To take immediate advantage of new paid leave credits, businesses can retain and access funds that they would otherwise pay to #the IRS in payroll taxes. Learn more about this and other #IRS info related to COVID-19 outbreak at: www.irs.gov/coronavirus

Neighbors and Business Friends!
As we face this period of unknown daily outcomes the Red Bluff Chamber wants to make sure we keep our local businesses in mind. It is important that we remember that throughout the year, these same businesses have been the support and sponsors we need for all of our fundraisers, events and occasions. We need them to be around not only next week but for years to come. Let’s support them, where we are able, to get them through this time.
Here are some easy ways to support our local business community:
- Give the Gift of Business – If you usually frequent a business, buy a gift card that covers your usual patronage. Then either spread out the use of those gift card over time while you continue to support them when the threat has passed, or give them away as gifts to friends and neighbors.
- Keep your Memberships and Subscriptions – If you have a subscription or a membership do keep it going. Many small businesses and non-profits rely on that support to keep doors open and programming going. “This too shall pass…”, so when the dust settles, you will want to be back in that painting class, picking up your ukulele or hitting the gym. The continued support you give can literally save that business.
- Buy Now, Pickup Later – If you were planning to go out and buy manufactured products like clothing, home goods and yard supplies – give that business a call. Pay for it now and have them set it aside for you to pick up later. For business that offer online – shop away!!
- Just Ask! – If you know the owners and/or employees of a business personally, send an email or give them a call and ask how you can help. They might have ideas for how you can support them that are specific to their business.
Of course – we want our neighbors to do this safely and not put yourself OR the at risk population in danger. Keep washing those hands, keep your polite distance from others, stay calm and do your foot shakes if you are out and about .
Steps like these will enable local businesses to keep paying their staff (your friends and family members) and keep businesses viable in our community.
We Thank You All!
Your Red Bluff-Tehama County Chamber of Commerce.
