Section 1102 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, Public Law 116-136, authorizes SBA to guarantee loans made by banks or other financial institutions under a new temporary program titled the “Paycheck Protection Program” (PPP). These loans are available to eligible small businesses, certain non-profit organizations, veterans' organizations, Tribal business concerns, independent contractors, and self-employed individuals adversely impacted by the COVID-19 Emergency. Proceeds of a PPP loan may be used for payroll costs, costs related to the continuation of group health care benefits during periods of paid sick, medical or family leave, and insurance premiums, mortgage interest payments, rent payments, utility payments, interest payments on other debt incurred prior to February 15, 2020, and to refinance an eligible SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan. Under section 1106(b) of the CARES Act, a loan may be forgiven in full or in part if the PPP borrower uses the proceeds for payroll costs, payment of interest on a covered mortgage, payment on any covered rent obligation, and any covered utility payment.

In order to make the financial assistance available as expeditiously as possible after the PPP was authorized, SBA obtained emergency approval of this information collection. As required by the PRA, SBA is submitting the information collection to OMB for standard (non-emergency) review and approval to use the information Start Printed Page 67810collection beyond the emergency expiration date, October 31, 2020.
