WE ARE STRONGER TOGETHER

    About    

 

NEWS RELEASE

Today Governor Doug Ducey announced Arizona’s plan to support Arizonans getting back to work, and fill the thousands of jobs available across the state. A brief outline of our actions are stated below, but you can find the news release, which has more in-depth information HERE.

 

Arizona will offer a $2,000 Back To Work bonus for eligible workers — with a goal of getting as many Arizonans as possible to rejoin the workforce by Labor Day, September 6, 2021.

Notice: Paycheck Protection Program resumes January 11, 2021 at 9am ET

The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll.

SBA will forgive loans if all employee retention criteria are met, and the funds are used for eligible expenses.​

How To Apply

You can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating. Other regulated lenders will be available to make these loans once they are approved and enrolled in the program. You should consult with your local lender as to whether it is participating in the program. 

If you wish to begin preparing your application, you can download the following PPP borrower application forms to see the information that will be requested from you when you apply with a lender:

                                                                                                                                                              

 

 

 

Governor Doug Ducey and the State of Arizona are taking important measures to prioritize the health and safety of its residents. Greater Yuma is also taking the necessary steps to protect our community. Businesses throughout the state are adhering closely to the latest guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the Arizona Department of Health Services. 

Local Yuma community partners have gathered a wide variety of resources to support businesses and employees as they help combat the spread of COVID-19. This site will be updated as new information becomes available.

On June 27, Governor Ducey issued Executive Order 2020-43 “Pausing of Arizona’s Reopening.” This paused the reopening of several specific industries with operations that are considered by public health to have a high-risk of spreading COVID-19, specifically gyms and fitness centers, bars and nightclubs, waterparks and tubing, and movie theaters. It also limited indoor and outdoor gatherings to no more than 50 people. Since this pause, Arizona has seen a decline in its percent positivity, an increase in hospital capacity, and an improvement in other indicators. On July 23, that order was extended, with a review every two weeks.
