Congress just recently passed the Federal Coronavirus Relief Bill referred to as the CARES Act. The centerpiece of the CARES Act is the $350 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) which is designed to help small businesses such as real estate investors / agents, landlords, business operators, etc.. continue to make payroll at their staff's current pay rate as well as cover key expenses by offering low interest rate loans with forgiveness potential.
Today we talk with Owen LaFave, Pinellas County market president for the Bank of Tampa, about the CARES Act PPP loans including who is eligible, what loan amounts are possible, and whether the loans are forgivable. Just remember that the PPP loans will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve bases, so you should get with your banker as soon as possible since the stimulus funds are limited and will eventually run out.
