Last evening, Congress passed the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act of 2020 (the “Flexibility Act”), which provides greater flexibility in how borrowers may use Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) loan funds and receive loan forgiveness. It is anticipated that the Act will be signed into law by the President in short order. Under the Act, businesses that have not already received a PPP loan will have until December 31, 2020 to apply, subject to continuing availability of funds. PPP monies are still available.
The Flexibility Act also extends the covered period used to determine loan forgiveness. Increased from 8 weeks, borrowers may now receive loan forgiveness for amounts spent on forgivable expenses during the 24 week period following loan origination, or December 31, 2020, whichever comes first.
