Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security (CARES) Act

In response to the overwhelming impact of COVID-19 on small business owners, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security (CARES) Act, was recently passed by Congress and signed into law in order to provide up to $350 billion in federally-backed funding to small businesses and nonprofits in need. The Payment Protection Program (PPP) funding will be facilitated by the Small Business Administration (SBA) and will include provisions delaying, deferring, or the outright forgiveness of principal on certain loans to small businesses – however the final guidelines of the program have yet to be released.

Looking Ahead
One of the expected opportunities of this Act is the potential forgiveness of a PPP loan. Please reference the treasury documents included below for more information.We suggest you pay special attention to the document retention requirements.
If you have any immediate questions about the program, please contact your local Loan Officer. Below are a number of resources provided by the U.S. Department of Treasury to help familiarize yourself with this program:
