On April 3, the U.S. Small Business Administration Administrator (SBA) Jovita Carranza launched the Paycheck Protection Program, a $349 billion emergency loan program created with the President’s signing of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES). The program provides forgivable loans up to $10 million to small businesses left financially distressed by the COVID-19 pandemic. The loans, which will be administered at the local level by a national network of banks and credit unions, are designed to maintain the viability of millions of small businesses struggling to meet payroll and day-to-day operating expenses. The loans are available to cover up to eight weeks of average monthly payroll (based on 2019 figures) plus 25% and payments are deferred for six months (interest does accrue). The SBA will forgive the portion of loan proceeds used for payroll costs and other designated operating expenses for up to eight weeks, provided at least 75% of loan proceeds are used for payroll costs. Eligible expenses for the eight-week forgiveness include, but are not limited to utilities such as electricity, gas, water, transportation, phone and internet access for services that began before February 15, 2020. For more detailed information, please review the County’s news release or visit http://www.SBA.gov/Coronavirus.
