In response to the overwhelming impact of COVID-19 on small business owners, the Coronavirus Aid, Relief & Economic Security (CARES) Act, was passed by Congress and signed into law in order to provide up to $350 billion in federally-backed funding to small businesses and nonprofits in need. The Payment Protection Program (PPP) funding was facilitated by the Small Business Association (SBA) and included provisions delaying, deferring, or the outright forgiveness of principle on certain loans to small businesses.
