CEBA will provide interest-free loans, of up to $40,000, to small businesses and non-profit organizations to help cover their operating costs during this time where revenues have been temporarily reduced.  Raymore Credit Union will be able to offer the CEBA Benefit by the end of April for our existing small business owners.

The Important Details:
