The Fremont Chamber of Commerce Center of the Universe Small Business Relief Fund is now accepting applications for our $1500.00 small business grants!

 

Our unique blend of small retailers, restaurants, services, and nonprofits make Fremont an incredible place to do business and work. It’s what makes the Center of the Universe, the Center of the Universe! And right now, those friends and neighbors need your support. You can help!
That’s why the nonprofit Fremont Chamber of Commerce has launched the Center of the Universe Small Business Relief Fund to help our small businesses & nonprofits impacted by COVID-19. While there are multiple grant relief resources available, we have identified gaps that leave some of our neighborhood businesses and nonprofits without relief opportunities.

Our goal is to raise a minimum of $75,000 – DONATE TODAY!

No amount is too small.

A newly posted frequently asked questions on PPP forgiveness document answers many common questions including these top five:
Question: Are payroll costs that were incurred before the Covered Period but paid during the Covered Period eligible for loan forgiveness?
Question: Are only salaries or wages covered by loan forgiveness, or can a borrower pay lost tips, lost commissions, bonuses, or other forms of incentive pay and have such costs qualify for forgiveness?
Question: Are nonpayroll costs incurred during the Covered Period, but paid after the Covered Period, eligible for loan forgiveness?
Question: If a borrower elects to use the Alternate Payroll Covered Period for payroll costs, does the Alternate Payroll Covered Period apply to nonpayroll costs?
Question: For purposes of calculating the loan forgiveness reduction required for salary/hourly wage reductions in excess of 25% for certain employees, are all forms of compensation included or only salaries and wages?
