A New Program for Tattoo Artists & Other Personal Services

This upcoming round of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is rumored to be more accessible to sole proprietors and independent contactors in the personal services sector, and more importantly the loans may be fully forgivable. Our professions have been marginalized by health regulators and ignored by politicians throughout the COVID crisis, and it has been the case even in regards to federal funding programs as well. It’s time our industry sectors receive the respect and assistance we deserve and so badly need.

The PBFC, in partnership with Adesso Capital, is accepting Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) applications for all Beauty & Personal Service sectors.

Please note: This is a pre-application designed to get personal service practitioners in the queue early. Congress will need to approve new Pandemic Aid legislation, and additional qualification criteria is expected when the SBA releases new rules and guidance for this latest round of federal aid. After submitting your pre-app you will receive an email with the next steps as soon as the program has been approved.
