DUPLICATION OF BENEFITS

Most of these programs have specific criteria on the allowed uses on any funds distributed. Businesses are advised to pay careful attention to these criteria. In addition, almost all programs do not allow a business to use funds from more than one program for the same expense or loss of revenue. This is known as “double-dipping” and may result in a demand for return of the funds along with penalties and interest.
