Desperately Needed Financial Assistance Is On Its Way for Small Businesses In Philadelphia And Beyond

Written by: Alan Nochumson

In the past week, the federal government as well as the city government in Philadelphia have announced additional sources of funding for small businesses.

Additionally, yesterday, the United States Senate voted to provide an additional $310 billion to further finance the Payroll Protection Loan (“PPP”) program which ran out of funds last week.  Of the additional $310 billion for this governmental program, $60 billion will be set aside for smaller lending facilities, including community financial institutions, small insured depository institutions and credit unions with assets less than $10 billion.  Moreover, $10 billion was authorized for grants under the Emergency Economic Injury Disaster Loan program, $50 billion for disaster recovery loans, and $2.1 billion for additional salaries and expenses for the Small Business Administration.

The Senate’s bill will also provide $75 billion for hospitals and health care to address coronavirus expenses and lost revenue and an additional $25 billion for the federal government, states, and municipalities to expand COVID-19 testing.

The legislation will need to be approved by the House of Representatives which is expected to vote on it on Thursday before it can be forwarded to President Donald Trump for his signature.
