CORONAVIRUS AID, RELIEF, AND ECONOMIC SECURITY ACT
On March 27, 2020, the President signed the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (“CARES Act”) into law providing approximately $2 trillion in assistance to individuals and businesses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The CARES Act includes a new loan program called the Paycheck Protection Program – administered through the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) – that provides up to $349 billion in 100% federally-backed loans to eligible employers. On March 31, 2020, the Department of Treasury set forth guidance on certain provisions of the CARES Act. Please note that additional guidance may be issued as the Treasury Department and the SBA implement the PPP Loan Program. The O’Hagan Meyer Team will update the information as necessary and we encourage our clients to discuss the PPP Loans with certified SBA lenders.
