•    $28.6 billion is available in funding to cover an estimated $270 billion in losses
•    Deadline:  Application portal opens 5/3/21 but businesses should register Friday or over the weekend so there are no hiccups Monday morning.  
•    This money will go very fast - interested businesses should apply on day one, hour one. 
•    Review the draft application and have it filled out and ready to copy over into live application when the portal opens on Monday.  
•    Have all documentation saved together and ready to upload.  
•    Average application time is 10-25 mins if all documentation is prepared and ready to upload ahead of time.
