Every Dollar Makes a Difference: Maximizing Your PPP and ERTC Resources

Recorded March 3, 2021

Do you know about the Employer Retention Credit (ERTC)? In this webinar, we’ll share an exciting new source of government support that was included in the same bill that continued the PPP program. 

The ERTC was created in last March’s CARES Act, but until this new bill passed, PPP borrowers couldn’t use that program. That restriction has been eliminated and the result may mean tens of thousands of dollars in additional government support for your camp. 

We'll review: 

  • How the ERTC works and how to qualify  
  • How much money you can expect to receive
  • How to plan for BOTH a PPP and the ERTC
  • What you need to do right now
  • How you can start using the credit today to subsidize 70% of your payroll costs

The rules on how to qualify for the credit and how to use it alongside your PPP funds are complicated. We recommend you read this extremely thorough article on the ERTC by ACA member and camp director Andrew Ziv.
