Several aspects of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act that was signed into law late Friday March 27, 2020 provides for various programs to be made available to small business owners and operators through the Small Buiness Administration (SBA).

Two of the larger programs approved in the CARES Act are the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loan, and the Small Business Debt Relief Program.
