In the third Town Hall in the Main Street Recovery Program (MSRP) series, State Treasurer John Schroder will be joined by LCPA Member Kurt Oestriecher and P&N MSRP Program Administrator Mark Staley, PMP, for an update on the program designed to provide grants to eligible Louisiana small businesses to assist their recovery for the impacts of COVID-19.

If you didn’t think your business or a client's business could qualify for an MSRP grant or that it wasn’t worth the time...THINK AGAIN!

Treasurer John Schroder will give an update on the Main Street Recovery Program, the available funds, and how the program has been retooled to make it less restrictive and more generous to Louisiana small businesses recovering from the impacts of COVID-19.

Kurt Oestriecher and Mark Staley will walk participants through some of the common myths and facts about the MSRP including:

  • which businesses can apply – you don’t have to be a minority- or veteran-owned business to get a grant
  • the new, one-sheet pre-qualifier to get you started on the abbreviated Quick Relief application – it really is easy
  • a detailed step-by-step look at the Quick Relief and Itemized application options, and the helpful formula and worksheets that clear the confusion
  • what expenses qualify in determining MSRP eligibility and how PPP and EID loans factor in – a business may get them all!
  • what documentation you need to apply and how to upload to the secure web portal – the information is securely stored
  • how you can provide a value-add service to your clients/business to help them get money that doesn’t have to be paid back
  • how even future claims through November 4 can qualify as expenses
  • how Quick Relief applications can get a second look and may qualify for the max grant of $15,000 – a nice surprise
  • the timeline for processing and the payment procedure – how a business receives the funds
  • PLUS, time for CPA Q&A.
