Paycheck Protection Program Extended

 The original deadline to apply for a Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan was June 30, 2020, but over the weekend, the President signed S. 4116 into law, extending the program for another five weeks. The program will now remain open until August 8, 2020. This program extension comes on the heels of The Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act which already provided good news to borrowers by making important changes to some of the original program terms.

 Businesses in need that have not already applied for a PPP loan should promptly consider this option, as funds are limited and loans are made on a first-come, first-served basis. It is estimated that program still has approximately $130 billion to lend to small businesses suffering from the adverse financial impacts of COVID-19.
