New COVID Stimulus Bill Passed
On December 27, President Donald Trump signed into law a new $900 billion coronavirus relief and stimulus package. The new Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits and Venues Act clarifies questions about the loan process, rules about applying for new loans, and seeking forgiveness for old ones. The bill gives the Small Business Administration 10 days to implement the new rules, so more guidance and information can be expected. Highlights of the bill can be found here. Look for more information as updates become available.
