Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
Technical Assistance and Multilingual Translation


In partnership with MACDC, MGCC is supporting Massachusetts small businesses owners by providing application assistance and multilingual translation services for the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).  These services will provide an opportunity for small business owners impacted by COVID-19 who would otherwise be unable to tap into the SBA’s economic relief resources.  

This initiative utilizes the skills of Technical Assistance (TA) Providers organized under the Small Business Technical Assistance Grant Program.  Resources for PPP are available in English as well as 19 other languages.  TA Providers will work one-on-one with small business owners in their preferred language to ensure their options within PPP are understood and they have the opportunity to apply. 

Please Note:

A list of participating PPP lenders can be found at https://www.sba.gov/paycheckprotection/findMGCC is not an eligible lender.

The SBA will not accept PPP applications in languages other than English.  Make use of the TA Providers participating in this initiative to complete the PPP application submission.
