Baker Donelson shares guidance on CARES Act

Understanding SBA Loan Programs to Determine Eligibility and Best Fit for Your Company

As a result of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (the CARES Act) passed by the Senate on Wednesday March 25, 2020 and expected to be passed by the House of Representatives and signed into law by the President on March 27, 2020, multiple avenues of relief will be available to small businesses through programs administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA). Notably, the size limits for consideration as a "small business concern" have been changed, making many more entities eligible for assistance through programs administered by the SBA.

Because each business is different, every business should consider the various assistance programs available to determine which fit it best, including other programs and benefits available under the Family First Coronavirus Response Act and the CARES Act. In addition, some states may have their own loan, grant and incentive programs. Please check with your local Baker Donelson office for availability of these programs.
