Stimulus Package #2:

Consolidated Appropriations Act

The 2021 Consolidated Appropriations Act, a $900 billion COVID relief package combined with $1.4 trillion government-wide funding, was passed by congress and signed into law. The COVID relief portion of the legislation includes many provisions for small businesses, including:

► Enhancements to 504 Refinance Program
► Temporary Fee Reduction for the 504 Loan Program
► Extension of CARES ACT payment subsidies for 504 loan payments
► New PPP Relief Program

We’ve summarized some of the key provisions below.

Helpful Resources

for businesses impacted by covid-19

What you need to know about the new SBA 504 Refinance Program

More businesses are eligible:

  • The loan to be refinanced only needs to have been in place for 6 months, rather than 2 years
  • The 504 Program can now refinance SBA 7a loans
  • 12 months of current payments is no longer an eligibility criteria, it is reviewed as part of the credit decision

For borrowers with SBA 504 loans:

  • For one year from Dec. 27, 2020 borrowers can refinance the first trust deed and take cash out to be used for business needs, rather than exclusively used on their building
  • Total financing: up to 90% LTV when combined with the 504 second mortgage

Temporary Fee Reduction for 504 Program

  • Fee reductions for new 504 loans approved from the date of enactment of the new law (Dec. 27, 2020) through Sept. 30, 2021
  • Waives 0.5% Third Party Lender Participation Fee on loan in senior lien position in 504 project
  • Waives 1.5% CDC processing fee (in debenture pricing)
  • SBA guidance expected to address handling of all loans currently in process at SBA

Debt Forgiveness

On January 19, 2021 the SBA released implementation guidance surrounding the Economic Aid Act.  This Act appropriates $3.5 billion to extend the small business debt relief program established by the original CARES Act.

View the chart created by National Association of Development Companies (NADCO) that summarizes the different payments subsidies SBA borrowers can qualify for based on their date of loan approval.

For SBA loans approved prior to the CARES Act (March 27, 2020) borrowers received or are receiving:

  • 6 months of payment subsidies if loan was funded on or before Sept. 27, 2020 OR 3 months of payment subsidies if loan was funded on or after Sept. 28, 2020
    (Funded borrowers & borrowers coming off deferment may have already received or been allocated this relief under original CARES Act)
  • 2 months of payment subsidies starting Feb. 1, 2021, capped at $9,000 per loan per month
  • An additional 3 months of payment subsidies for loans to underserved (includes Community Advantage Loans and Microloans) or hard-hit industries, capped at $9,000 per loan per month

For SBA loans approved from March 27, 2020 to Sept. 27, 2020 borrowers received or are receiving:

  • 6 months of payment subsidies if loan was funded on or before Sept. 27, 2020 OR 3 months of payment subsidies if loan was funded on or after Sept. 28, 2020

For SBA loans approved from Sept. 27, 2020 to Jan. 31, 2021, borrowers do not receive payment subsidies.

Why? Congressional intent of the CARES Act is to provide relief to existing borrowers in place at the onset of the pandemic and to stimulate new loans that would not otherwise occur because of the pandemic.

For new SBA loans approved from Feb. 1, 2021 to Sept. 30, 2021 borrowers receive:

  • 3 months of payment subsidies, capped at $9,000 per loan per month (subject to availability of funds)

Paycheck Protection Program

TMC Financing will be processing Second Draw PPP loans of up to $500,000 to all qualified borrowers who have an existing PPP Loan with TMC.

Businesses that received a First Draw PPP Loan can apply for a Second Draw PPP Loan if they experienced a drop of at least 25% in 2020 revenue over the same time period in 2019

PPP borrowers must have used all of their First Draw PPP Loan on or before the expected date on which the Second Draw PPP Loan is disbursed

  • The full amount of the First Draw PPP Loan must have been spent on permitted authorized costs
  • The new PPP Program is authorized by SBA through March 31st, 2021
  • The maximum loan amount for a Second Draw PPP Loan is equal to 2 1/2 months of the borrower’s average monthly payroll
  • For restaurants and businesses in the hospitality industry, the maximum loan amount can be as much as 3-1/2 months of average monthly payroll

If a Second Draw PPP borrower used its 2019 figures to determine its First Draw PPP Loan amount and uses its 2019 figures to determine Second Draw PPP loan amount, TMC will not need any additional documentation to substantiate payroll costs

  • For Second Draw PPP Loans less than $150,000 PPP borrowers must submit the revenue reductions documentation EITHER at application or when it applies for PPP Loan forgiveness. For Second Draw PPP Loans greater than $150,000, PPP borrowers must submit documentation at the time of application
  • View an example Second Draw Borrower Application, SBA Form 2483-SD (1/21) here. This is for informational purposes only.

    • Expenses paid for with PPP loan proceeds, are deductible from federal taxes
    • A simplified forgiveness application for loans under $150,000 is expected to be released soon
  • EIDL: The $1,000 – $10,000 grant received by EIDL borrowers will no longer be deducted from PPP loan forgiveness.
