If your business missed applying for PPP loans or didn’t quality, the federal government has approved Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) for small businesses in all 50 states. This relief is offered via the Small Business Administration (SBA).
Targeted EIDL Advances
As of April 7, 2021, a new round of EIDL Advances, called Targeted EIDL Advances, was launched. It’s important to note that the combined amount of the Targeted EIDL Advance and any previously received Advance will not exceed $10,000.
The Targeted EIDL Advances differ slightly than previous EIDL grants. Businesses are only eligible if they meet ALL the following criteria:
Suffered economic loss greater than 30 percent, as demonstrated by an 8-week period beginning on March 2, 2020, or later, compared to the previous year. You will be required to provide the total amount of monthly gross receipts from January 2019 to the current month-to-date.
Must have 300 or fewer employees. Business entities normally eligible for the EIDL program are eligible, including sole proprietors, independent contractors, and private, nonprofit organizations. However, agricultural enterprises, such as farmers and ranchers, are not eligible to receive the Targeted EIDL Advance.
While there isn’t an available application, be on the lookout for an email invite from the SBA to apply, as it’s the ONLY way to apply. Just to be sure, you can search your inbox for this domain now – @sba.gov – to be positive you haven’t received it already.
Businesses that received a previous EIDL Advance less than $10,000 will have first priority to apply for the Targeted EIDL Advance, followed by businesses that applied before December 21 but did not receive because available funding was exhausted. They take several weeks to be sent out fully, so don’t fret if you don’t get it right away.
If you receive an email and qualify, you may be asked to provide an IRS Form 4506-T for tax information purposes.
For more info about the Targeted EIDL Advances, read more here. Here is a list of FAQ’s from the SBA’s website about the grants for more information.
This program offers:
Loans of up to $2 million
Interest rates of 3.75% (2.75% for non-profits)
Collateral of $25,000 for all loans (might be waived in some cases)
30-year repayment terms
Funds within 14-20 days
Cash advances of up to $10,000 upon application that DO NOT need to be repaid
PPP vs EIDL Loan
We’ve pulled some of the most important distinctions between PPP and EIDL loan properties for you (but can read them for yourself here):
While the PPP loan is forgivable, the EIDL loan is not (the $10,000 advance is actually a grant and does NOT require repayment)
There are fewer restrictions on what you can spend EIDL loans on, making them a perfect avenue to invest in marketing or other business growth efforts
PPP lenders are regulated lenders like banks, while the SBA handles EIDL loans
There is a personal guarantee required for EIDL loans exceeding $200,000
The SBA will place a UCC lien against your assets for collateral
You can still apply for an EIDL loan even if you haven’t filed your 2019 taxes. However, you will be asked to submit IRS form 4506T, which provides the SBA with access to your previous tax returns

The $1.9 trillion relief bill, known as the American Rescue Plan, has passed Congress and will head to President Joe Biden for a signature. Highlights of the bill include extended unemployment benefits, direct checks to individuals and more.
While some of the bill was changed during its time in the Senate, it’s largely similar to the initial version passed by the House. However, some key provisions, such as a higher minimum wage, were scrapped amid efforts to pass the bill swiftly.
This article defines the most relevant terms included in the bill.
Small Business Assistance
The bill invests billions toward small business assistance. Here is the current funding breakdown:
New grant program for bars and restaurants, specifically: $28 billion
Paycheck Protection Program: $7.25 billion
Just like the two other COVID-19 relief bills passed during the pandemic, this version also features direct payments to Americans. This time around, eligible recipients can expect $1,400 per person ($2,800 for couples), including adult dependents—a family of four could receive up to $5,600.
However, payment parameters are stricter this time around than with the previous direct payment. The full amount will go to individuals earning under $75,000 (or $150,000 for couples), with payments cut off entirely for individuals earning over $80,000 (or $160,000 for couples). Individuals earning an amount between those figures will receive a reduced sum.
The bill extends two previously established pandemic unemployment assistance efforts: the Pandemic Unemployment Assistance Program and the Pandemic Emergency Unemployment Compensation program. Unemployed gig workers, freelancers, contractors and others who previously qualified for aid will continue to be eligible under these programs. The financial assistance provided by these two programs is currently set to expire in mid-March, which pressured legislators to act quickly.
The bill also provides for enhanced unemployment assistance payments of $300 per week. Under the bill, these programs and their financial aid are extended throughSept. 6.
The bill sets aside billions in financial aid to homeowners and renters. Here is the funding breakdown:
Aid for emergency rental assistance: $22 billion
Aid for mortgages, utilities and property taxes: $10 billion
Aid to states and localities to help individuals at risk of becoming homeless: $5 billion
Emergency Paid Leave
The Families First Coronavirus Response Act (FFCRA), signed into law on March 18, 2020, required certain employers to provide employees with paid sick leave or expanded family and medical leave for specified reasons related to COVID-19. That requirement expired Dec. 31, 2020.
The American Rescue Plan maintains the status quo, in that it does not require employers to offer leave under the FFCRA framework. However, the bill does provide tax credits for employers that voluntarily provide leave under the FFCRA framework through the end of September 2021.
Aid to Schools and Child Care
A significant portion of the relief bill involves aid to states, including schools and child care facilities:
Aid for getting K-12 schools ready for in-person learning: $125 billion
Money may be used for purchasing protective equipment, improving ventilation systems and hiring support staff, among other things. However, 20% of the money schools receive must be used to address pandemic learning loss—for example, extending learning time into the summer.
Aid carved out specifically for private schools: $2.75 billion
Aid for colleges: $40 billion
Institutions will be required to spend at least 50% of their allocated funds on emergency financial aid grants to students.
Child care provider assistance: $39 billion
Funds may be used for payroll, rent, protective equipment and other expenses.
The relief bill provides an overhaul of the child tax credit for the 2021 tax year. The bill increases the amount of the credit to $3,000 for each child under the age of 18 and $3,600 for children under the age of 6. The credit will also become fully refundable, meaning low-income individuals would receive the benefit.
The bill also expands the earned income tax credit for individuals without children. The maximum credit will be nearly tripled, and eligibility will be expanded as well.
The bill subsidizes private health insurance premiums for unemployed workers through the Consolidated Omnibus Budget Reconciliation Act (COBRA). The provision allows individuals eligible for COBRA insurance coverage to maintain their employer-sponsored coverage after losing employment without having to pay any portion of the premiums through the end of September 2021.
Additionally, the bill invests nearly $35 billion in premium subsidy increases for those who buy coverage on the ACA Marketplace. The bill increases the subsidies provided to currently eligible individuals, and removes the 400% federal poverty level cap (equal to approximately $51,000 for an individual) on subsidy eligibility.
Aid to States, Local Governments, Tribes and Territories
The bill provides billions in financial assistance to states, local governments, tribes and territories. Here is the current funding breakdown:
Aid to state and local governments: $325.5 billion
Aid to tribes and territories: $24.5 billion
Creation of the Coronavirus Capital Projects Fund, to carry out capital projects directly enabling work, education and health monitoring: $10 billion
What’s NOT in the Bill
A minimum wage hike to $15 per hour—one of the most discussed provisions from the initial bill—has been removed from the final version due to strict rules governing budget bills in the Senate. Some Democrats have suggested this provision may be considered as a standalone bill, but any movement on that front remains to be seen.
Additionally, the bill does not include an extension of the eviction moratorium, which is set to expire on March 31, or an expansion of mandated paid sick and family and medical leave. While neither were included in the original House bill, these were popular provisions contained within one of the previous bills.

Top federal health officials on Monday, March 8th told Americans who are fully vaccinated against Covid-19 that they could once again gather in small groups at home without masks or social distancing.
The guidance, issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, came almost a year to the day after the coronavirus first gripped the United States and Americans were told to avoid large groups to stop the spread of the deadly disease.
Still, the good news is heavily caveated. Travel, even for those who’ve been vaccinated, is advised against — though some prominent medical experts said the CDC is being overly cautious. And the threat of pernicious Covid-19 variants may be about to inflict another surge of death and sickness.
But the announcement of the guidelines on Monday was a striking moment after 12 months of pain and heartache, signaling the first step in a real — albeit restrained — return to normal life for the 30 million Americans already fully vaccinated.

Organization is a skill requiring time and effort to improve productivity on the job. As this year is still young, many workers are thinking of ways to raise their organizational skills.
Whether it’s investing in a new planner or homing in on new habits, organization is needed to master your employment position and improve your performance.
If you want to improve your organization skills and get a firm grasp on your job this year, study these 10 techniques to help you get your work life coordinated and develop positive habits.
1.Set a Goal
Goal setting is the first step to getting organized. By creating your own set of priorities, you’re eliminating what doesn’t serve you and welcoming positive energy.
The trick here is to start with small, attainable goals as opposed to one major one. This will help you eliminate feeling overwhelmed and allow you to celebrate small victories.
2. Hold Yourself Accountable
It’s easy to miss a Zoom call or slack off on your project when there are not any significant consequences to your actions. Instead of leaving your progress up to chance, hold yourself accountable to actually doing what you set out to do. This will help you to stick to your schedule and stay organized.
3. Reward Yourself
In order to meet your goals and stay motivated, you have to reward yourself. Celebrate even the smallest of victories and reward yourself with self-care “treats” when you meet your goals. This will keep you motivated about your business goals and excited to continue.
4. Set Alarms
One of the best ways to stay on top of your to-do list is to set alarms. Whether it is on your phone or setting traditional clocks, having that little reminder will help you stay on track. Set your schedule, deadlines and other important information so you can always stay in the know.
5. Invest In a Planner
Planners have become all the rage. People use them as scrapbooks, journals and more. Keep your life organized by investing in a good planner. This will give you a visual of what you need to accomplish. You can write out your feelings, create monthly vision boards and keep track of your events. Writing out your responsibilities will give you clarity that’s unmatched.
Trying to stay organized in a cluttered space is counterproductive. In fact, it can bring about more stress than you initially intended. Start this Year off right by cleaning out all forms of clutter you may have.
Throw away old reports, delete very old emails and junk that’s simply holding you back. This will help you develop your mental strength and stay organized.
7. Create a Monthly Goal
Each month provides an opportunity for a new start. Take advantage of this gift by setting goals you can meet. If you noticed that you struggled with productivity last month, make that a priority this month. It even helps to create vision boards with your monthly goals illustrated on them. This will help you to stay on track in the coming months.
8. Practice Saying “No”
One of the biggest hurdles to sticking to your personal schedule is getting caught up in other tasks. For example, Wednesdays are your designated “research new information” days. However, your coworkers want to hold meetings on Wednesday. You haven’t been sticking to your schedule and it’s impacting your mental health.
What do you do? Well, start by learning how to put yourself first and say no. Distractions, whether positive or negative, can throw you off of your schedule. This can make you feel disorganized and anxious. Learn how to say no and not feel guilty about it.
9. Wake up Earlier
If you challenge yourself to wake up 15-30 minutes earlier each day, you’ll be amazed at how much you can accomplish. Doing this will give you the opportunity to get done everything you intended and start the day with a fresh mind.
10. Prepare For the Work Day The Night Before
We’ve all been there – rushing to get everything together while still trying to make appointments on time. The best way to alleviate those rushed feelings is to prepare for your next workday the night before. List your activities, lay your clothes out, pack your lunch (if you bring one) and get your items ready. This will make your morning routine seamless and enjoyable.
Getting organized is definitely a challenge, but a fulfilling one. Make your 2021 great by implementing these helpful tips into your daily routine. You’ll begin to feel more organized and prepared for everything.

In January (and every January), about 40% of all Americans vowed to change one thing or another about themselves.
New Year ’s resolutions usually fall under the following categories:
Health and diet
Focusing on personal relationships
Fast forward 6 months later, 60% will have completely forgotten all about their resolutions.
But carrying out your resolutions, whether for work or in your personal lifestyle, can be done. Read on to find out how.
1. Define your Motivation
There are 2 types of motivation:
Intrinsic – this means your motivation comes from inside. For example, you prefer making a presentation, going to a business seminar, or doing research by yourself because you like how you feel afterwards.
Extrinsic – you’re pushed forward by actions outside your personal scope. In other words, you prefer working on a team project, and work harder when there’s a reward system in place.
Once you figure out your motivation type is, then all you have to do is put yourself in situations that make you more excited to accomplish even more.
2. Actions speak louder than results
Deciding on a goal for the new year is always easier said than done. However, it’s the steps you take to reach that goal that’s the tricky part. If you want to stick to your resolutions, it’s wise to break each step down into smaller goals, if possible, to make them more manageable.
Moreover, each time you achieve one, reward yourself and feel proud of what you’ve accomplished. Positive reinforcement is crucial to help guide you as you push toward your goal and commit to your responsibilities.
One way to keep everything in check is to make sure your actions are SMART:
Specific. Having a specific end result prevents you from making excuses.
Measurable. Evaluating your progress will give your motivation a boost.
Achievable. You can set daily goals as a building block to bigger goals.
Relevant. Otherwise, if it’s not relevant, why bother?
Time-bound. Goals need to have a defined end date.
3. Be Honest with yourself
The more realistic your resolutions, the more likely you’ll see them through. If your goal for this year is to exercise more, then start small. Instead of planning a 5-day workout week, go for 20 minutes a day then increase gradually.
You’ll find that, as with all goals, as soon as you start seeing what you’ve accomplished, you’ll be pumped to do even more. However, it’s crucial that you stay away from the “all-or-nothing” approach. Doing something, even if it’s a small piece of what you’d originally planned, is much better and more productive than doing nothing at all.
Moreover, it’s equally important to not have too many resolutions up in the air at once. Make a list, prioritize them, and go from there. Once you feel the first one’s in the bag, go for the second, and so on. Focusing on one goal at a time will channel your energy and efforts there, helping you reach your target faster.
4. Think things through
Having a positive mindset is key when progressing towards your goals, but let’s be honest; every plan is bound for failure if you’re careful. Be smart and anticipate these obstacles so that when they do appear, you’ll be prepared.
For example, if you get bored when you exercise, choose upbeat workout music that’ll get you revved up. Or you can workout at home, as you catch up on your favorite TV shows. If your motivation method is extrinsic, ask a co-worker to be your accountability partner. The idea is to nip it in the bud before it becomes stronger than your willpower so that you can surmount any obstacle that comes between you and your goal.
5. Be accountable for your actions
Accountability means you’re taking responsibility for the choices you’re making. This may seem easy to do at work when you have a deadline and a boss reinforcing it. It may not seem as easy when you’re home alone and skip cooking a healthy meal, and order take-out instead.
You can enlist the help of a peer or join a support group where you’d know that you made a certain commitment to someone, if it’s simply sending a photo of your home-cooked meal on social media or, you can hang a calendar on your wall with progress notes so you can keep tabs on how far you’ve gotten and what still lies ahead.
Keeping your resolution can seem scary at first. However, with these 5 steps, you can do anything you put your mind to. Moreover, once you accomplish your first resolution, you’ll find that it’s not only beneficial, it’s fun as well!

A skilled staffing agency can help businesses of all sizes and industries in reducing staffing expenses, while the economy and financials environment are wracked by Coronavirus. 8 staffing related approaches which can be realistically implemented to improve the overall effectiveness of an organization by reducing overheads and costs are discussed below.
1.Reducing Mistakes While Hiring
Hiring the wrong employee will usually cost you up to two times the annual salary of the employee. To prevent this problem, staffing firms are screening the direct hires and temporary staff thoroughly, so that you get the right workers. In addition to choosing applicants who have the experience, skills required, the applicant will also have the personal traits, which match your work culture. Hiring risk can be reduced using the firm’s guarantees for direct placement and temp hire service.
2. Overtime Elimination
If you have laid-off or furloughed your permanent staff to a skeletal level, your company may have to pay overtime to achieve your targets. Yet overtime is an awfully expensive approach to accomplishing your workload. Clearly it is better to use temporary employees to reduce the labor cost at least for the short term.
3. Transferring Fixed Costs To Variable Costs
In most businesses, labor cost is the largest expense, and it can be reduced using a temporary staffing agency. The core permanent staff should be reduced to a nominal level that still accommodates normal functioning but a staffing agency can be used to provide temporary staff for peak workloads, whenever required. This strategy is very effective for organizations which get a sudden large demand that lasts for only a limited time.
4. Reducing Benefits Expenses
Employee benefits are usually 30-35% of their payroll. These expenses can be eliminated using temporary or contingent workers paid through a staffing firm. To reduce employment risks, these employees can replace independent contractors. This option should be mainly used for short term employees like for a limited-time project or for a unique skillset that is difficult to recruit and only needed periodically.
5. Shift The Administrative Work
When temporary staff is hired instead of employees, all expenses for processing, administering payroll, benefits are transferred to the staffing firm. The organization can partner with the staffing firm to create a program for orientation, training for new recruits to eliminate training expenses
6. Reduce Costs By Hiring
Permanent employees have only so much capacity for getting work done and capacity constraints can adversely affect the productivity of the employee and the organization. Hiring lower-paid temporary staff to handle routine tasks will cost considerably less. Letting the permanent staff focus on their core job and avoid lower value tasks will also boost their productivity and quality of results. That assures the company gets the most value and return for their employees’ salary. Professional and technical temporary workers can be hired for their expertise and to help complete project work on time. Hiring the right staff will help to complete the most work efficiently at a lower average cost.
7. Staffing Firms Responsible for Temporary Staff Unemployment Claims
Staffing agencies hire the temporary staff on their payroll, so any unemployment claims for the temporary staff are handled by the staffing firm. The customer can lay them off if demand falters or a project ends but the claims will not affect the company profit or rating.
8. Key Employees Focus On Critical Work
If key HR employees are spending their time on hiring work, the staffing firm should screen, test, interview and check references of job applicants. Using the experience of a staffing firm will reduce hiring time and the employees can focus on other important work instead of hours reviewing multiple resumes to find the right candidate.

U.S. has had an amazing history. From the war for independence that seemed impossible to win, to the rise of America to a global power, to selecting the first black president. Nowadays, it seems though our country is experiencing troubling conflict.
News stories every day bring to light obvious visible distress. Yet, we feel extremely fortunate to be American. We have the freedom to fundamentally speak what we want to say, to worship where we decide and to work where we like. As patriotic people, we choose to believe we still live in the best country in the world. Clearly, there are actions we must take to improve.
Here are some little-known facts about our country’s early period and one of our favorite holidays, Independence Day.
Thomas Jefferson created the initial draft of the Declaration of Independence on his “laptop.” It was literally a piece of wood, smoothed and buffed, and cut to just the right size to fit on his lap.
John Adams wrote to his wife that we would celebrate the occasion on July 2nd (when the document was submitted, but it wasn’t approved until the July 4th) with parades, bonfires, fireworks, chiming bells, shows and more. So, at the signing of the Declaration, 4th of July 1777, the colonists celebrated despite the fact that they didn’t know if they could actually win the war.
They printed 200 copies of the Declaration in those early years. But now only 27 are known to exist. Check your great grandparents’ attic and meet me at the Antiques Road Show!
Ben Franklin wrote to a family member expressing his disappointment in the vote that identified the bald eagle as our national symbol. He thought the eagle had a terrible moral character and the turkey would make a better symbol. If this had been the case would we be eating fish on Thanksgiving Day?
The Declaration of Independence has been an inspiration for other countries which also desired their own independence. Countries like France, Greece, Poland, and Russia used it as encouragement to follow their parallel path.
The 4th of July is the most popular day in the U.S. to consume hot dogs. Nearly 155 million hotdogs are consumed that day alone! Does anyone else picture the hotdog eating competition sponsored by Nathan’s Famous in Coney Island? Can you imagine dipping 70 hotdogs in water and chowing down?
And finally, the tune of the national anthem was originally for an English drinking song called “To Anacreon in Heaven.” (Anacreon was a Greek poet well known for writing songs about wine and love.). Francis Scott Key originally wrote the lyrics to the song in 1814 aboard a ship that was in a battle during the War of 1812.
As you grill your hotdogs this July 4th and explode your fireworks, take a little time to appreciate what came before us to allow us to have the right to celebrate this 4th of July.
We at Flexicrew wish our country always flourishes and celebrates many more years of independence. Wishing you all a very happy, safe and blessed independence day!!

successful companies are turning to staffing agencies to lessen the burden on
the human resource department. In most firms, the HR department that oversees many
different employee issues such as hiring, processing salaries and conducting appraisals,
personnel issues, records, etc. However, the recruiting landscape is rapidly
changing. Outsourcing such service proves to be a very prudent move to any employer,
especially those with a minimal recruiting team.
First, the pressure on the HR department is alleviated. They can concentrate on other crucial activities that directly contribute to income generation or minimizing legal HR exposures for the firm. They can work on aligning HR with their firm’s strategic direction.
Also, staffing agencies are typically a team of the best recruiters. Such a firm has the know-how to select the best candidates from a large pool. This is mandatory for any firm since highly qualified employees are your ‘secret sauce.’
Additionally, a recruitment agency will save the company a lot of time especially during the hiring process that is usually lengthy. This frees up internal people to concentrate on other tasks.
employer, you should consider engaging a staffing agency the next time that you
need to recruit.
The following are 5 secrets of a well qualified staffing agency:
1. Staffing Agency that Partners with Employers
entertain the prospect of working with a staffing agency that is not
collaborative. One of the essential qualities to look out here is whether the
staffing agency’s employees possess excellent listening skills. This is because
primarily, their task involves listening to candidates and evaluating them based
on their behaviors and credentials. If the staffing agency doesn’t cooperate
with your firm, there is a high chance of them bringing you the wrong kind of
staff. You should therefore not hesitate to dismiss a staffing agency that
2. Professional and Competent Recruiters
You want to work with a legitimate firm that can settle even its in-house issues. So, you need a firm that possesses high-quality recruiters who have considerable experience following years of work in the sector. Therefore, as you plan on the staffing agency to settle on, consider the qualifications of their staff. If they are not professional, run – don’t walk away. Such recruiters may end up hiring under-qualified and incompetent staff.
The reputation of a company is enhanced through numerous means, and one of them is retaining most of its employees over a long period. A company where employees keep quitting shows that there are pertinent issues. Employees in such a firm are highly likely to be not highly motivated, and this highly impacts on their output. Avoid hiring such firms as they may cost you much in the end.
3. Widens the Recruitment Net
It common for recruiters to only shortlist candidates that apply on the employer’s job board. This at times is wrong because there is a considerable pool of applicants on other job boards. Therefore, a hiring firm that limits itself to a specific job board minimizes its chances of landing the best candidates in the market. As you look out for a hiring agency, it is imperative to request the firm’s job board scope. This helps determine if the staffing agency’s final shortlist is fully comprehensive of what’s available in the market.
Staffing is a Chattanooga-based hiring firm that is known for extending beyond
the basic job boards and delivering the best candidates within a short
4. Accessible Any Time – Flexible As Required
employer, you probably work beyond the regular operating hours to ensure you’re
your work gets done and everything is streamlined. You also would want to
consult the hiring agency whenever you feel that there’s a rectification that
you intend to make. Therefore, choose one that fits that bill. A hiring agency
that works beyond the regular working hours shows dedication to delivering work
even within short deadlines.
Such a staffing
agency should rise to the top of your hiring list like froth on hot chocolate.
5. Staffing Agency Understands Your Company’s Culture
on a set culture and values. Without a particular culture, many companies would
not have achieved what they pride themselves on today. It is an important
aspect that should not be overlooked. Therefore as you seek the best staffing agency,
ensure that you are clear on what your own company believes in. It is from this
point that you can choose the recruiting firm that is amenable with your firm’s
culture. Such is a company that is willing to operate within your set systems
without trying to introduce new procedures that compromise the firm’s way of
employer, you need to keep up with the trends to ensure that your firm can
compete with others. And one of the ways of achieving this is ensuring that you
have the most qualified staff. This can be enhanced by hiring a reliable
staffing agency to do the ‘heavy lifting’ for you.
