You are welcome to ask questions here in the chat.
Christine Irizarry-Amoruso
21:02
Do you have any idea of the calculation of the grant amount? Will it be based on average payroll like PPP?
Nestor Marc
21:23
if you have residual income, can you still apply?
Tessie Watts
23:28
A few people are waiting to get in to the video.
Tessie Watts
25:12
It's working.
Judith figareau
25:49
If a medical office received PPP but need funding to purchase PPE, Can they apply?
Jacoby Waters
27:07
To understand the requirements, a nonprofit is not eligible for the PBC Cares?
Tessie Watts
27:08
Are you funding businesses or projects?
Judith figareau
27:14
Thank you
Jacoby Waters
28:46

Tessie Watts

Thanks
Takiya Gibson

I own a salon and applied for the PPP loan, my issue is that most of our employees are 1099 thus we did not recieve enough PPP to keep our employees on payroll. Would this grant assist with payroll as well as the new saftey measures we have (Less clients, due to to socal distancing)
Takiya Gibson
34:14
So we need both the county and the City business Tax receipts
Maria Cole
34:46
you need BOTH tax receipts -- your city and the county.
Takiya Gibson
35:38
so I get the county one from the tax collector off down town?
claudia ruiz levy
35:58
Question: can someone who lives in another county but their business is located in PB apply?
Takiya Gibson
36:00
Only 9700 from PPP
Takiya Gibson
36:59
So if I have the City of West Palm Beach Tax Receipt, where would I get the county tax receipt
Nestor Marc
37:18
just go . first come, first serve
Maria Cole
37:35
yes. go to the tax collectors office.
Fran Graves
38:03
Is the maximum grant amount limited by the amount received from PPP?
Fran Graves
38:58
Thank you.
Takiya Gibson
41:40
Would bank statements be ok as I have not processed financials with my account since this has taken place
Takiya Gibson
42:08
1096 form
Takiya Gibson
43:01
2019
Takiya Gibson
43:18
and I have the 1096 from the payroll company for 2019
Nestor Marc
43:39
you should be ok
Robbie Alexander
49:03
please clarify if the grant has to be repaid
Maria Cole
49:46
No. It is a grant. Money you do not have to repay.
Tessie Watts
52:13
Just to confirm, businesses should have been operational since October 2019?
Robbie Alexander
53:39
thanks so much for this very pertinent information
Kristyn Cox
53:49

claudia ruiz levy
57:49
Thank you all
Christine Irizarry-Amoruso
58:09
can I unmute and make a comment?
Kristyn Cox
58:21
Is there a way to backdate your business operations to Oct. 2019 to legitimize you as a business owner? (like 1099 to tax paying entity?)
Nestor Marc
58:31
thank you very much for all of the information
Kristyn Cox
01:00:36
Thank you Christine!
Kristyn Cox
01:01:53
What is the justification of "operating"?
Kristyn Cox
01:02:13
yes!!!
Sha'Quanna Davis
01:02:51
I started my business 11/18/2019. Do I qualify?
Kristyn Cox
01:04:11
where do we get a definition of "operating"?
Codey Gauff
01:04:19
delray business tax receipt would that qualify for palm beach county
Sha'Quanna Davis
01:04:54
I was in business but I filed then with the SBA.
Kristyn Cox
01:05:33
so is business registration "operation"? What if you are self employed?
Maria Cole
01:06:26
Codey you have to have BOTH. PBC Tax collectors office will expedite those -- just go to their office and pick up the forms.
Nestor Marc
01:06:27
are we gonna get fine for not having city tax receipt?
Kristyn Cox
01:06:39
I may have already missed this but are the Self Employed excluded?
Maria Cole
01:07:07
you will not have a fine for not have a city tax receipt but you need a county receipt
Kristyn Cox
01:07:47
so how do you qualify as "operational" as self employed?
Nestor Marc
01:07:55
you skip my question
Tessie Watts
01:08:03
I know it's first come, first serve - but is there a deadline?
Maria Cole
01:08:18
Hi Nestor, I wrote a response.
Kristyn Cox
01:09:22
but if you're self employed but don't have a "registered business" because I don't think that's a requirement, right?
Nestor Marc
01:09:31
I do have a county receipt, my business in under the county not the city. very confusing
Kristyn Cox
01:10:56
like, I'm a painter, I work for myself with my name and my number, but I don't have a registered business, my income is based on being self employed
Kristyn Cox
01:11:50
it's not a requirement to start a business if I work for myself...
Kristyn Cox
01:12:25
thank you Wolff!
Fran Graves
01:12:35
Our business has a number of 1099 employees. As such, thise expenses are not eligible under PPP. Would our business be eligible for this grant?
Nestor Marc
01:13:35
county
Codey Gauff
01:15:01
still not clear if I have a 1099 independent contractor am I eligible
claudia ruiz levy
01:15:03
Thank you so much-
Nestor Marc
01:15:55
thank you very much
Takiya Gibson
01:16:27
I was late is the site to apply and upload documents in the beginining of the presentation
Kristyn Cox
01:17:14
Could you all post as a follow up about the schedule c if you're a self employed person? That is a literal disconnect for our marginalized community members and everyone that usually gets these resources.
Maria Cole
01:18:01
The site to apply is not live yet. As soon as we have it, we will post it on social media and email. You can sign up for the email at ParagonFL.org
Takiya Gibson
01:19:11

01:32:32
Will you be able to resubmit if your original application is declined?
Kristyn Cox
01:32:46
thank you so much to you all!!!
Kristyn Cox
01:35:32
do we know if the application will track disadvantaged businesses?
Tessie Watts
01:35:38
Thanks -
Kristyn Cox
01:35:53
or if the funding process will track that?
Kristyn Cox
01:36:38
i mean to see where the money goes
Kristyn Cox
01:37:44
but how will we know if they're black owned or minority owned businesses?
Kristyn Cox
01:38:22
that would be a great watchdog effort
Kristyn Cox
01:39:08
thank you!
Takiya Gibson
01:40:18
For sure....Great source of information
Kristyn Cox
01:41:07
if there's no section that asks if you are a minority owned business, we should encourage everyone to put it in the notes of the application if there is a section to do so
Maria Cole
01:41:34
That's an excellent suggestion Kristyn!
Kristyn Cox
01:42:34
codey is going off!
Kristyn Cox
01:42:42
that was great!
Kristyn Cox
01:43:54
maybe set up a facebook group for this
Maria Cole
01:44:21
Yes! I will set it up through Paragon.
Kristyn Cox
01:44:27
thank you Maria
Takiya Gibson
01:44:37
Yes I would not have known that...So now I have to go create a miracle and try to get it tomorrow
Kristyn Cox
01:44:56
i agree...let's put a public record out for this to be seen!
Kristyn Cox
01:46:46
people shouldn't have to incur new expenses either for these funds
Takiya Gibson
01:47:53
For the County tax Receipt
Takiya Gibson
01:48:16
I am on Palm Beach Lakes, in West Palm Beach. I have a City
Kristyn Cox
01:48:31
County is the basic requirement, right? City also if I'm in or operating in one?
Kristyn Cox
01:49:36
send these comments to the County! I hope their watching!
Kristyn Cox
01:50:15
y'all are the best! thank you for representation
