Maryland Strong Roadmap to Recovery
A Message from Governor Larry Hogan – The Maryland Strong Roadmap to Recovery is designed to get Maryland moving again. As a lifelong small businessman, there is no one who wants to get the Maryland economy open again more than I do.
Governor Hogan’s COVID-19 Response Page – The Hogan administration is committed to being transparent, keeping Marylanders fully informed, taking actions based on detailed planning, and making decisions based on the facts on the ground.
Payroll Protection Program for Small Businesses– The Paycheck Protection Program provides small businesses with funds to pay up to 8 weeks of payroll costs including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.
COVID-19 Layoff Aversion Fund– directs grants to small businesses experiencing economic stresses in order to mitigate potential layoffs or facility closures due to COVID-19 and promote “social distancing.” Eligible businesses may apply for funding up to $50,000.
SBA COVID-19 Disaster Assistance Loans– Loans may be used to pay fixed debts, payroll, accounts payable and other bills that can’t be paid because of the disaster’s impact. The interest rate is 3.75% for small businesses.
Work Sharing Program– Within MD Labor, unemployment insurance (UI) also has where employers reduce worker hours (instead of laying employees off), and the employee can receive partial UI benefits to supplement lost wages.
