Today, President Trump signed the $484 billion interim coronavirus funding bill that includes $310 billion in additional funds for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The additional funds were needed for the popular program once it became clear that the initial $349 billion in the CARES Act would run out.

The new law also addresses concerns raised in the wake of some large businesses and universities receiving loans through the program. New provisions require that borrowers certify in good faith that their PPP loan request is necessary, taking into account their current business activity and their ability to access other sources of liquidity sufficient to support their ongoing operations in a manner that is not significantly detrimental to the business.

This week the Treasury Department also released an 11-page FAQ document on the Paycheck Protection Program.
