The Small Business Interruption Loans (SBIL)
If your business has been or will be substantially affected by the COVID-19 crisis it is important to consider all available avenues to sustain the business now and for the future.  Key provisions of the proposed CARES ACT may offer much needed financial assistance.  The Small Business Interruption Loan (SBIL) as provided for in the CARES Act draft as of March 21, 2020 will piggyback off of the disaster loan assistance program already in place.  It is important to know that  the language is proposed legislation and continues to develop. Consistent with an offensive approach, it is also important that you are ready to act when the final version of the CARES ACT is passed.  As of now:
