On April 3 2020, the SBA released an interim rule with additional guidance regarding the affiliate rules applicable to the SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).  The U.S. Department of Treasury also released interim guidance regarding the affiliation rules applicable to the PPP. As previously reported in our Alert, the program is intended to support small businesses, sole proprietors and independent contractors that have been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19.
