The US Senate passed another round of emergency COVID-19 relief funding yesterday, and the House is currently discussing the package. A vote is expected still this week.

The roughly $480 billion relief package is in addition to the $2 trillion CARES Act passed on March 25. The new relief package will include more funding for small businesses impacted by the pandemic, along with additional funding for hospitals and expanded testing.

Once passed, the small business disaster loan programs, Paycheck Protection Program, and Economic Injury Disaster Loans through the Small Business Administration are expected to reopen reasonably quickly.

Demand for the loans will again likely be high, so it's important to speak with your banker/lender right away if you want to apply for the PPP Loan and begin preparing your paperwork.
