Massachusetts Mutual Life Insurance Company (MassMutual) and Western New England University (WNE) School of Law's Center for Social Justice have joined the COVID Relief Coalition of law firms, nonprofits, and government agencies to provide small business owners and nonprofit organizations with pro bono (free) legal support.

Through the Coalition, members of MassMutual's Law Department, assisted by WNE School of Law Small Business Clinic alumni and students, will provide legal guidance to help small businesses and nonprofits understand the requirements to receive and, if eligible, access loans through the Federal Government's Paycheck Protection Plan (PPP) as well as to help identify other potential sources of relief in the western part of the Commonwealth, primarily in Berkshire, Franklin, Hampshire, and Hampden counties.

Small businesses and nonprofits in these communities seeking free legal assistance about the PPP are encouraged to contact the COVID Relief Coalition through the link provided here.
