Wealth Strategy: Government Relief for Business Owners

24 April 2020

Calamos Wealth Management Wealth Strategy Group

The following information is intended to help business owners with information related to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans offered through the Small Business Administration (SBA) and Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL) and Emergency Grants.

We encourage business owners to work with their local business lenders, CPAs and business lawyers to engage them for assistance in preparing the PPP application and supporting documentation. All loan terms will be the same for everyone regardless of the lender facility they use.

On Friday, April 24, 2020, President Trump signed into law a $484 billion coronavirus stimulus bill that includes a provision allocating about $370 billion toward the loan programs for small businesses cited below. About $310 billion of the funds will replenish the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and approx. $60 billion to the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (EIDL).
