2nd Opportunity for Financial Aid for your Church

Some TBBA churches recently applied to receive a loan/grant from the government and they have already received the money. Some others applied but did not receive the loan. I want you to know that the President is expected to sign another stimulus bill for small businesses and churches as early as this Friday.  For those churches that applied a few weeks ago and did not receive a loan, I encourage them to call their bank as soon as possible to find out if they need to resubmit their application or do anything else.
