Last night, Empower U, the Cincinnati Area Board of Realtors, the Ohio Real Estate Investors Association, and Finney Law Firm  co-hosted a webinar for more than 140 participants on the topic of PPP loan forgiveness.

As background, in April, we helped hundreds of Ohio businesses access PPP and EIDL loan funds (see this webinar for small businesses for and this webinar aimed at independent contractors).

But Part #2 of the PPP program is qualifying for and applying for loan forgiveness. If you don’t do Part #2 properly, you will have to re-pay the funds.

Rebecca Simpson Heimlich and Congressman Dr. Brad Wenstrup gave a detailed webinar (with a great and detailed PowerPoint) on the rules and approach to obtain forgiveness.  That webinar is posted by Empower U here.

If you have further questions about the PPP or EIDL loan programs, contact Rebecca Simpson Heimlich (513.797.2856).
