On Tuesday (April 21, 2020), the United States Senate passed interim emergency relief legislation to increase funding to the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) by an additional $310 billion. $60 billion of those PPP funds are reserved for small lenders, which should assist borrowers that do not have pre-existing borrowing relationships with major banks. The Senate bill also appropriates additional coronavirus relief aimed at hospitals, testing, and SBA disaster relief loans. Here are the highlights of the bill passed by the Senate:
The Senate bill still needs to be approved by the House of Representatives and signed by President Trump. The increased funding would bring much needed relief to borrowers who found themselves frozen out of the first round of PPP loans after the money was exhausted in just ten days. Businesses who wish to apply should contact their lender (or seek out an SBA approved lender) for an application.
