The U.S. Department of Treasury has issued guidance on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), the nearly $350 billion authorized in the CARES Act (the $2.2. trillion stimulus package) to provide small businesses with funds to pay up to 8 weeks of payroll costs including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay interest on mortgages, rent and utilities.
