Since the enactment of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the “CARES Act”) on March 27, 2020, the U.S. Small Business Administration (the “SBA”) and the U.S Treasury Department (“Treasury”) have issued a sizable number of rules and additional guidance to implement the CARES Act’s marquee small business loan component – the Paycheck Protection Program (the “PPP”).
This up-to-date guide summarizes the key terms of the PPP, including with respect to the forgiveness aspect of the program, and addresses various issues and frequently asked questions that Proskauer attorneys have been dealing with.
