Washington Alert: New Law Provides Historic Loans to Small Businesses

Washington Alerts on COVID-19 Response

ESOP companies and other small businesses are eligible for dramatically expanded federal loans under a new law signed by the President late Friday afternoon.  

Funds available through the Small Business Administration’s 7(a) loan program have been boosted from about $20 billion to roughly $369 billion, under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (or CARES Act). Loans cover the period from March 1 through December 31, 2020.

Loans used to retain and pay employees will be eligible for whole or partial forgiveness.
