A reminder: All small businesses (including independent contractors, sole proprietors, and 501(c)(3) non-profits) are encouraged to apply for the federal Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which is still accepting applications! Help is available to prepare for your application (click here for PPP Application). The Town of North Andover is part of a coalition of partners across the Merrimack Valley, including municipalities, banks, and non-profits, that are working together to assist small businesses that were left out of the first round get into the PPP pipeline.
Through a new relationship between Mill Cities Community Investments (MCCI), Reading Cooperative Bank, and Berkshire Bank, businesses that were not able to submit applications in the first round can now be prioritized, but businesses should act fast! Since the formation of this partnership, MCCI has been successful in getting 80% of the applications it has assisted approved!
For assistance in submitting your application through this program please reach out to the MCCI contacts below. Phone lines will be monitored around the clock.
