PPP Apply Now: The Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce Partners to Empower Businesses to Apply for the PPP Loan Program


Pittsburgh, PA. (February 9, 2021) – The Pittsburgh Metropolitan Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce and Customers Bank are partnering to offer a streamlined platform for the Paycheck Protection Program, providing assistance to business owners with applications through a system that will ensure completeness of the application as well as provide one-on-one customer service in both English and Spanish.
