CARES Act: Compelling Opportunity

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act (2020) provides fast and direct economic assistance for American workers, families, small businesses, and industries.


While the Payroll Protection Act has recently drawn the attention of most small business owners and their bankers, many people have missed another very compelling opportunity brought about by the CARES Act. The SBA will be making six monthly payments of principal and interest for all current borrowers under the SBA 7(a), 504, and Microloan programs. Additionally, the SBA has now extended that payment plan to any new borrower under one of those programs who receives funding for their loan prior to September 27, 2020.

What You Should Know

If business owners are exploring the purchase of a business, equipment, real estate, or other assets, the SBA has just made it less expensive to do so. But business owners shouldn’t delay in making a decision to pursue a new loan. These loans are issued by banks and partially guaranteed by the SBA if the bank does everything perfectly during the underwriting and loan process. With all the hoops that a borrower has to jump through, the process isn’t fast. If business owners want to take advantage of this program, they need to pursue the loan immediately.
