CARES Act Became Law March 27, 2020
The Corona-virus Aid Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act): Business has slowed and many companies are forced to make difficult decisions in regards to suspending their operations or laying employees off. The CARES Act is designed to help small businesses with loans of up to $10 million to keep them solvent while the country goes through this pandemic.
These loans can be taken out and must be used to pay staff wages, benefits, company's rent and utilities. If the business owners continue to employ the staff, or hire employees back who may have been laid off already, the loan will be forgiven and will not be required to be paid back for up to 8 weeks.
