Stay Informed: Policy and Voter Registration Updates

PPP Loans and Small Business Mergers and Acquisitions
  • Guidance from the Small Business Administration (SBA), the U.S. federal government & banks continues to evolve, and the initial loan system ran out of money in early April 2020. Still, a second round of PPP funding has arrived. And new SBA steps may ensure that more dollars flow to smaller businesses. (souce: Channele2e)
  • Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi have been working on a deal over the next batch of coronavirus stimulus payments.
  • House Democrats released a revamped version of the HEROES Act — a $2.2 trillion package that includes additional relief for small businesses.
  • Proposed Paycheck Protection Program updates include streamlined forgiveness for loans under $150,000 and a second draw for distressed businesses that have already received loan funding. (source: CNBC)
  • The SBA is now allowing lenders — under certain conditions — to approve the sale or merger of companies that took Paycheck Protection Program loans.
  • The new guidance, issued Oct. 2, means that not all mergers or acquisitions have to receive SBA approval before going forward, although borrowers and buyers still need to adhere to specific rules.
  • The lack of guidance — and the requirement that SBA approve all deals in advance — had caused headaches for some small-business owners. (Source: Silicon Valley Business Journal, Oct. 5 2020)
