The PPP is one of two programs intended to provide nearly $900 billion to support lending to both small and large businesses under measures enacted by the “Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act” (CARES Act) (Pub. L. No. 116-136). 

PPP funding legislation pending in Congress

The U.S. House of Representatives is expected today to consider a bill—"Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act" (H.R. 266)—that would provide more than $400 billion in new funding for the PPP and for health care, including relief for health care providers and for coronavirus (COVID-19) testing. The bill does not include tax provisions.

The Senate passed the bill on Tuesday, April 21, 2020. Read TaxNewsFlash
