The agriculture industry has adapted with tremendous speed to ensure the food supply chain remains strong during this unprecedented time. Farmers, ranchers, producers and processors are focused on keeping operations safe and viable, while trying to address challenges like making payroll and improving cashflow.
There are a number of existing federal relief incentives that Congress is encouraging agribusinesses to leverage to help offset any financial uncertainty. Along with the Payroll Protection Program (PPP), these incentives can help provide companies with the additional resources needed to stay successful.
alliantgroup’s agriculture experts will be hosting an informative presentation to answer frequently asked questions about the PPP loan program and to review the powerful relief incentives available to agriculture businesses during this time. The Treasury is encouraging all companies to claim these benefits now, so don’t miss out!
