Financial Relief Under the CARES Act
During the COVID-19 public health emergency, many community-based organizations and small to mid-sized for-profit businesses will find themselves with decreased revenue due to reduced operations or closures. In direct response to this challenge, the federal government recently implemented two new loan programs that appear well-situated to offer genuine financial relief.
On March 27, 2020, the President signed into law the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (“CARES”) Act which provides the Small Business Administration (SBA) with $349 billion for a new small business loan “Paycheck Protection Program” and $454 billion to the Department of the Treasury for loans to mid-sized businesses, non-profits, States, and municipalities.
On this webinar, we will provide an overview of the key aspects of these loan programs, including:
- Eligibility requirements and other restrictions
- Allowable uses for loan funds
- Application procedures and how to find an approved lender
- Requirements for loan forgiveness
- CEOs / Program Directors
- CFOs and Fiscal Staff
- Compliance Officers and Staff
- Project Managers and other Grants Management Staff
After this webinar, you will be better able to:
- Determine whether your organization is eligible for a loan under the Paycheck Protection Program.
- Recognize other potential loan options under the CARES Act.
- Identify the allowable uses for loan funds.
- Understand the application process and how to locate an approved lender.
- Describe the requirements for loan forgiveness.
