PPP Loan: Life Raft or Anchor for Your AE Firm

PPP Loans AE Firms | Stambaugh NessDuration: 60-minutes
Previously Recorded

Many AE firms received PPP loans in good faith and used the proceeds based on the requirements at the time. Now some firms are being told they didn’t qualify. Adding to the confusion for AE firms, state DOTs are not consistent in their contracting practices, making the application of forgiven funds to state contracts even more complicated.

Watch on-demand as SN’s AE PPP experts discuss PPP loan eligibility requirements, why the AE industry is truly qualified for this program, and how to support your reasoning that the loan was necessary.

Attendees will review sample state contracting practices to show the appropriate application of forgiven funds and hear feedback on our recent conversations with several DOTs. Plus, we’ll look at the PPP timeline from where the AE industry was at the time of the loan to the present day, and what to expect in the future.

Learning Objectives:

  • Learn what the eligibility requirements were for the loan.
  • Gain a high-level overview of where the AE industry is and where it could be going.
  • Understand how to best document your firm’s position for taking the loan.
  • Discuss what we’ve been hearing from the DOTs and your peers.
