Small Business Debt Relief Program
Posted on 04.21.2020
Does the CARES Act provide debt relief if I already have SBA loans?
Yes. The CARES Act provides immediate relief to small businesses with non-disaster SBA loans. Under this provision, the SBA will cover all loan payments on qualifying SBA loans to include principal, interest, and fees for a period of six months.
Do the debt relief provisions apply to new loans?
Yes. The relief provisions are also available on qualifying loans to new borrowers who receive loans within six months of March 27, 2020.
Are EIDL and PPP loans eligible?
No. Disaster loans made through the EIDL program and loans made through the PPP are not eligible.
