To our clients and friends:
On July 4, 2020, the Paycheck Protection Program Extension Act was signed into law, which extended from June 30, 2020 to August 8, 2020 the deadline to apply for a loan under the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (“SBA”) Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”). The SBA has an estimated $130 billion remaining in the PPP.
The SBA also recently issued an interim final rule (the “Interim Final Rule”), which amends the SBA’s previously issued interim final rules on PPP loan forgiveness to incorporate certain provisions of the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 signed into law on June 5, 2020.
Our Alert summarizes the changes to the loan forgiveness requirements of the PPP implemented by the Interim Final Rule and is available here.
