Financial & Business Resources

 

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP): The PPP is designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. Another round of funding has been allocated and is now accepting applications from participating lenders.  If you did not have an existing banking relationship, it was difficult to obtain a loan during the initial round. 

 

To help you, Brixmor has partnered with two companies that can help you file your application with an SBA-certified lender.  This resource is free to you.  We encourage you to apply as soon as possible through your local lender or by clicking one of the resources below.
