Email from Congressman Devin Nunes, April 23, 2020: "Today, I voted with my colleagues in Congress to replenish the Paycheck Protection Program with another $310 billion in financial relief for small businesses. Additionally, the legislation passed today set aside $60 billion of the $310 billion exclusively for small lenders, such as credit unions and community banks. I hope this infusion of funds will help many small businesses in the Central Valley stay afloat as we continue to navigate the Coronavirus outbreak."

UPDATE TO SAVE SMALL BUSINESS FUND: THIS PROGRAM HAS CLOSED DUE TO OVERWHELMING APPLICATIONS. VISIT THE LINK BELOW AND BOOKMARK IN CASE THEY RE-FUND THE PROGRAM. This just in from the Tulare Chamber of Commerce: "Small businesses are the foundation of our communities and our economy. Employing nearly half the American workforce, they keep our neighborhoods running and make them feel like home. The impacts of the coronavirus pandemic have wrought unprecedented financial uncertainty. These businesses need resources and relief —and they need it now. That’s why the Save Small Business Fund, a grantmaking initiative funded by contributions from corporate and philanthropic partners, is providing $5,000 in short-term relief to employers across the United States. These one-time supplemental cash grants are for businesses that have between three and 20 employees and operate in an economically vulnerable community. The grant application will go live today at 12:00 PM PT/3:00 PM ET. To learn more about the Save Small Business Fund and to apply for a grant, visit savesmallbusiness.com."
