NORTHBROOK, IL—May 21, 2020—With stay-at-home orders lifting across most of the United States, carpet cleaning and other businesses hurt by the COVID-19 outbreak hopefully will quickly see business increases. But while you’ve been waiting on the economy to begin its rebound, your company might well have had to turn to the Small Business Administration for loans during the pandemic.

There’s no question the pandemic has negatively affected profits for most companies. To help with this, the CARES Act was signed into law during the pandemic to help relieve economic disruptions, providing $376 billion in aid to small businesses through new and established Small Business Administration (SBA) loans: the Paycheck Protection Program, EIDL Loan Advance, SBA Express Bridge Loans, and SBA Debt Relief Program. For more information on SBA loan programs, visit sba.gov.
