Apr 21, 2020 - Blog by


On April 21, The U.S. Senate approved a deal to add roughly $484 billion to the existing coronavirus stimulus relief package. 

Of the $484 billion bill that will be injected into the program, roughly $320 billion will be added to the Small Business Paycheck Protection Program. Of that, $60 billion will be set aside for community-based lenders, small banks, and credit unions to assist small businesses that do not have an established relationship with big banks. An additional $10 billion will be allocated for administration fees. 

In addition to the Paycheck Protection Program, $75 billion will go to overwhelmed hospitals and health care providers, and another $25 billion will be added to the COVID-19 testing efforts. 

The legislation will head to the House on Thursday, April 23. Once approved, the bill will head to President Donald Trump for approval.
