The Paycheck Protection Program is back.
For millions of small business owners still struggling to pay rent and employ workers, the federal government's forgivable loan program is a lifeline. This round looks a little different than the original that launched in the spring. It's aimed at even smaller businesses, and provides special funding for the service sector, nonprofits, and under-represented entrepreneurs.
On Tuesday, January 5, Insider hosted a webinar detailing what the $325 billion in funding means for business owners and answered questions live from more than 200 attendees.
