CARES Act: Paycheck Protection Program
Information for Small Businesses That Have Been Affected by COVID-19
The Coronavirus Aid Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act provided one of the largest stimulus aid packages to individuals and businesses in the nation’s history. The CARES Act included the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), a $349 billion business loan program that offers relief measures to small businesses, primarily to keep employees on payroll and cover other stipulated business expenses.
On Friday, April 24, new legislation was signed into law that provided an additional $310 billion into PPP.
Over the length of the program, American Momentum Bank approved over 1,505 applications representing $268.6 million of PPP loans. As many of our clients approach the conclusion of their covered period forgiveness terms, we are entering the forgiveness request phase of the program.
