The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act is a $2.2 trillion stimulus package approved by Congress in response the COVID-19 pandemic. It is aimed at helping individuals and families, employers, health care providers and state and local governments during these difficult times.
What it means for businesses:
- Paycheck Protection Program: this program incentivizes employers to retain employees and certain other expenses during the COVID-19 pandemic. The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll (including benefits), rent, mortgage interest or utilities.
- Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program: the Economic Injury Disaster Loan program provides long-term, low-interest loans to small businesses and nonprofits to meet financial obligations and operating expenses that could have been met had the COVID-19 pandemic not occurred.
- Expanded Unemployment Benefits: unemployment benefits are expanded to include self-employed, 1099-independent contractors, and low wage workers. Weekly unemployment pay has also been boosted under the CARES Act.
