The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act signed into law on March 27, 2020, allocated funds to help small businesses keep workers employed amid the pandemic and economic downturn. Known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the initiative provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses. A second coronavirus relief bill was signed into law on April 24, allocating additional funds for the Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program.
On April 23, 2020, the U.S. Treasury released an updated FAQ document to clarify and provide additional guidance on SBA PPP Loans. Click here to review this document.
SBA PPP Funds are to be provided in the form of loans that will be fully forgiven when used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, utilities. Loan payments will be deferred for six months. No collateral or personal guarantees are required. Neither the government nor lenders will charge any fees.
Loan forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining their employee payroll, or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels. Forgiveness will be reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages decrease.
Small businesses with 500 or fewer employees are eligible for the PPP —including nonprofits, veterans organizations, tribal concerns, self-employed individuals, sole proprietorships, and independent contractors. Businesses with more than 500 employees are eligible in certain industries.
