QUESTIONS & RESOURCES

What financial relief am I able to get through the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act)?


There are two main options: 1) the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and / or 2) an Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). Small Businesses are able to apply for both as long as they don’t pay for the same expenses. Be sure to check with your financial advisor or lender before taking both types of loans if you are not sure of the specifics.

OPTION 1: PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM (PPP)

What is it?*


The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. Eligible recipients may qualify for a loan up to $10M. The Small Business Administration (SBA) will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks, and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities. Loan payments will be deferred for six months. Source; Source




How much can I receive?*


Small businesses can get up to a $10M loan. The maximum value of a company's loan will be equal to the lesser of $10 million or the sum of 2.5 times the average monthly payroll cost in 2019. This includes wages for employees (up to $100,000 annually per employee), as well as expenses for paid sick leave, health care, and other benefits. Source

What can the loan be used for?*


Payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.

The loan will be fully forgiven if the funds are used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (at least 75% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll). Loan payments will also be deferred for six months. No collateral or personal guarantees are required. Neither the government nor lenders will charge small businesses any fees.

Forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels. Forgiveness will be reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages decrease.

This loan has a maturity of 2 years and an interest rate of .5%. Source




Who is eligible?*


Small businesses with less than 500 employees (including sole proprietorships, independent contractors and self-employed persons).




What lender can I use?


You can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating.

If you do not have a current relationship, FCP Management’s preferred lender is Simmons Bank who is an approved lender for PPP loans granted by the CARES Act.

My company is an essential business—what can I do to help keep my employees safe while at work?


IMPORTANT: Let your employees know that they should inform you immediately if they are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or believe they have come in direct contact with someone with COVID-19, including a sick family member.

  • Encourage all employees to frequently wash their hands and use hand sanitizer.
  • Promote social distancing by avoiding any group/team meetings and utilizing video conferencing instead.
  • Add hand sanitizer stations to common areas, lobbies, and near highly-trafficked doors.

  • Post signage in common areas reminding employees of the CDC’s “Stop the Germs” guidelines.
  • Actively encourage any sick employees to stay home.

What should I do if someone in my office tests positive for COVID-19?


  1. Notify your local Department of Public Health and the CDC.
  2. Notify your Property Manager.
  3. Remind anyone that was in close contact with the confirmed person to consider self-quarantining for 14 days.
    • If an employee is confirmed to have COVID-19, employers should inform fellow employees of their possible exposure to COVID-19 in the workplace but maintain confidentiality as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA).
