On March 27, President Trump signed the CARES Act into law, providing emergency financial relief to individuals, students, and small business owners. Part of the relief package includes funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, which provides loans for business owners who have been impacted by COVID-19. These loans are 100% guaranteed by, and eligible for loan forgiveness from, the SBA.
The Paycheck Protection Program is administered by the SBA with support from the U.S. Department of Treasury. It expands the SBA 7(a) loan program to help business owners cover payroll and benefits, and other eligible expenses, like rent, mortgage interest, interest on existing debt, utilities or insurance premiums.
