56:56
letter said 80% with 20% determined later

becky weber

My understanding is they will not let the total of PPP, EIDL and CERTS does not exceed your 2019 gross revenues
Suzanne Thornburg
59:06
The Treasury Department has approved your CERTS grant application and created a grant agreement for you. Your company will receive its grant award in two payments: an initial payment representing approximately 80% of your expected total final award amount, and a second smaller “top off” payment to the extent additional CERTS funds are available to be distributed to approved grantees.
Suzanne Thornburg
59:27
There is no reference to an actual "20% on ours just a second "top off" payment.
Kevin Creighton
59:49
19.99 per employee
Suzanne Thornburg

Additional verbiage in our letter states:
Kaya Armagan
01:03:54
I logged in to portal, My status says "Application Signed and submitted - Under review". When can I get answer? thank you for help.
Suzanne Thornburg
01:04:00
The amount of your second “top off” payment is not known at this time. It will be calculated in several weeks after Treasury completes the reviews of the entire CERTS applicant pool and can determine the amount of additional funds available to be distributed to approved grantees. Treasury will notify you of the specific timing and amount of the second payment and the total final award amount
Wellington Lain
01:04:19
I added both draws from PPP, and multiplied by 80% that's the number that's being showed as my first draw.
William Cox
01:06:08
We should be setting this aside and using EIDL funds (if available) to claim as much as possible on ERTC at least through the end of the year...right?
Jared Jozaitis
01:08:28
Wages have gone up faster than inflation rate. Would adjusting to "market" wage rate be a red flag?

Governor Janet Mills announced today an economic recovery grant program to support Maine charter transportation businesses statewide and customer-facing businesses and organizations that are open to the public and within 25 miles driving distance of a US-Canada border crossing. Funded by $10 million in federal CARES Act Coronavirus Relief Funds (CRF), the Charter Transportation and Border Business Assistance Grant Program will support the economic recovery of businesses disrupted by the extended closure of the US-Canada border.
