WASHINGTON — Former White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is starting a forgivable-loan program for struggling Arkansas small businesses, she said Thursday.

Known as the Arkansas 30 Day Fund, it will provide up to $3,000 to entrepreneurs fighting to survive in the the global pandemic, she said.

A formal announcement will be made Monday, the same day that the organization begins accepting applications, she said.

Thus far, more than $100,000 has been donated for the effort, she said.

Modeled after a similar program in Virginia, the Arkansas fund will offer assistance to businesses that employ three to 30 people. In order to qualify, the business must have been in operation for at least a year and must be owned and operated by an Arkansan.
