T-minus #1Day until the U.S. Small Business Administration opens the doors to the #PaycheckProtectionProgram.

As #smallbiz prepare their applications, they should make sure to consider:
What is my primary #NAICS code?
Is 500 employees the right #sizestandard for my business?
Do I have any #affiliations to disclose?
How much of this loan can be #forgiven?
What do I do if my application gets #denied?

#HeroesAct2 — LiveTweeting Legislation

Like many #smallbiz attorneys and advocates, I’m spending most of tonight and tomorrow reading over the Democrats newly-released #COVID19 #stimulus package. As I review, I’ll share some insights and discoveries. Stay tuned!
Congress proposes three #setasides for #PPP funding:

(1) at least 10% for #smallbiz with fewer than 10 employees OR for certain loans made to biz in low- and mod-income areas

(2) < 30% for nonprofits, housing coops, and hotels/restaurants

(3) < 50% for supplemental PPP loans.
Also similarly reserves the lesser of 25% or $15B of the unused #PPP loans appropriations for loans by Community Financial Institutions.

Twice this week, Sec. Mnuchin and @federalreserve Chair Powell have expressed the need for additional aid for #smallbiz, including a second disbrusement of #PPP loans — even suggesting targeted aid for restaurants, hotels, and other specific industries . . .
The next #COVID19 stimulus will likely have additional aid for #smallbiz, but with additional segmentation and requirements.
- Biz with less than 20 ppl
- Restaurants & Hotels (i.e. Sector72)
- #MinorityOwned & Rural Biz
Each will likely have a specific carve out in the bill . .
Specific to @federalreserve’s #MainStreetLending programs, we may see modifications on eligibility, personal guarantees, and lender requirements to help unclog this funding channel for #smallbiz and “larger” #SMBs . . .

Like every business, Washington’s #NFL team had to consider existing #trademarks when #rebranding. According to this story, the new name is being held up by a trademark dispute (meaning someone likely holds the trademark in their industry already). . . apple.news/AGRfYxT-LTSK8J…
The Washington #RedTails very well might the new name #Snyder and his #NFL are seeking, as someone in Virginia already holds a very similar #trademark

And in the industry of #football no less!

Universities and colleges across the US should implement procedures immediately to allow international students to attend classes in person. Permit international students to attend class in person on campus on a limited basis to avoid #ICE’s “fully remote” deportation rule.
Professors may still teach remotely, and US students may still attend remotely, avoiding large student gatherings in response to #COVID. International student likely don’t need to attend every class in person, meaning in-person gatherings would still be less frequent.
Concurrently, a challenge to ICE’s rule under the #APA and related statute must be undertaken by interested parties to abolish this rule and protect these student populations.

#SBA has issued the new #PPP loan #forgiveness application.

The Forgiveness Application suggests that borrowers may be subject to changes in #PPP regulations issued after the borrower applied for the PPP loan.
According to the #Forgiveness application, “[t]he Borrower’s eligibility for loan forgiveness will be evaluated in accordance with the PPP regulations and guidance issued by SBA through the date of this application. . . .

On 5/13, #SBA provided some relief for #smallbiz concerned with possible SBA audits, particularly related to “economic need” certifications and the “good faith” safe harbor. But, #PPP loan recipients did not receive a full reprieve from all challenges. kaneesq.com/insights/ppp-l…
Despite the grace for “economic need” certifications, #SBA audits and post-hoc reviews still present significant risks for borrowers and even lenders, regardless of the #PPP loan amount.
Borrowers of less than $2 million should still prepare for potential #SBA audits and post-hoc reviews, particularly if they apply for #PPP loan #forgiveness. These reviews will likely require borrowers to substaniate size, #affiliations, #NAICS code, and even #creditworthiness.
