Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021 – Paycheck Protection Program

The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, was signed into law on December 27, 2020. It enhances and expands certain provisions of the CARES Act and changes the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) by authorizing additional liquidity for a second round of PPP loans and expanding PPP borrower eligibility in some instances. There are also changes that will impact both new and existing PPP borrowers including simplified forgiveness of loans $150,000 and less.

On January 6, 2021, the SBA issued two Interim Final Rules that address PPP loans both to first-time borrowers (First Draw PPP), as well as new PPP loans to businesses that previously received a PPP loan (Second Draw PPP). The program expires on March 31, 2021, unless funds are exhausted sooner.

UPDATE: The Credit Union has been advised that the Paycheck Protection Program funding for most financial institutions has been exhausted and that the SBA’s portal has stopped accepting applications for new PPP loans. As a result, the Credit Union’s loan application portal has been closed.
