COVID-19 Financial Relief Programs
In response to the COVID-19 outbreak, the Maryland and Federal governments have enacted emergency legislation designed to assist small businesses and entrepreneurs with the economic hardships resulting from the mandatory closures and social distancing measures required throughout the state. These new government programs provide substantial emergency assistance for businesses faced with the threat or reality of closing their doors and laying off or firing their employees.
