On Friday, April 24, 2020, President Trump signed the $484 billion Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act (H.R. 622) into law, after it was approved by the House of Representatives on April 23. The Senate previously approved this measure on April 21, after days of intense negotiations between the Treasury Security and leaders of both the Republican and Democrat parties.
The new legislation provides additional funding for the Paycheck Protection Program, SBA disaster loans and emergency grants, hospitals, COVID-19 testing and SBA salaries and expenses. This legislation is a stopgap measure, providing necessary additional funding to programs enacted by the CARES Act, until the President and Congress can determine a “Phase 4” stimulus or relief package, some time next month.
More information on this legislation can be found in Senate Approves Additional Funding Bill for SBA Loan Programs posted on the Tronconi Segarra & Associates website on April 22, 2020.
