Latest COVID Bill Replenishes Paycheck Protection Program

Latest COVID Bill Replenishes Paycheck Protection Program

This week, Congress passed and President Trump signed into law the Paycheck Protection Program and Health Care Enhancement Act Pezna. This new law provides overdue additional funding to programs that are a vital life line for businesses and health care providers, while also aiding efforts to improve access to COVID-19 testing which will allow us to reopen our economy 장강7호.

According to the Small Business Administration, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) has helped more than 18,700 businesses in Oregon keep their employees on the payroll with over $3.8 billion in forgivable loans Download the Microsoft toolkit. Last week, the initial $350 billion provided to this program ran dry. Businesses and their employees were left in limbo as Democrat leaders in the House and Senate needlessly delayed quick replenishment of the funds Download seven knights computer. I’m glad that, finally, this week we were able to provide an additional $310 billion to this program, ensuring additional businesses can work with their lenders to access these funds 소니 베가스 14.

The law passed this week also provides $50 billion in additional funding to the Economic Injury Disaster Loans (EIDL), and an additional $10 billion for a grant advance up to $10,000 for businesses who have suffered lost revenue due to the COVID-19 outbreak. These loans issued directly by SBA provide an additional source of working capital for businesses working to stay afloat during these difficult economic times. Importantly, changes were made to the EIDL program to clarify that agriculture businesses with under 500 employees are eligible to apply for these loans.

To address the COVID-19 health crisis, the new law provides additional funding for hospitals and expands testing capacity. The bill provides an additional $75 billion to hospitals and health care providers for COVID-19 related expenses and lost revenue due to COVID-19. I have heard how rural hospitals across our district have struggled under Governor Brown’s order ending elective surgeries through the middle of June. These hospitals are critical to providing care in our rural communities and this additional funding will help ensure they can continue playing that role into the future.

There is also specific funding provided for testing. As a member of the White House Economic Task Force, dedicated to advising the Administration on reopening the economy, I understand the importance of conducting more tests in the United States. We need more tests in order to safely reopen the economy. The bill provides $25 billion for testing and specifically provides:

  • $11 billion for states, local authorities, and tribes to develop, purchase, administer, process, and analyze COVID-19 tests, scale-up lab testing, contact trace, and support employer testing
    • Of this funding, $2 billion is provided to States consistent with formulas set out in the CARES Act so that every state receives funding; $4.25 billion is provided to areas based on the relative numbers of COVID-19 cases, and $750 million to tribes and tribal organizations
  • $1 billion to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) for improved surveillance efforts
  • $1.8 billion to the National Institutes of Health (NIH) to develop, improve, and implement testing; and accelerate research of rapid tests
  • $1 billion to the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA) for advanced research, development, production, and purchase of COVID-19 tests or related supplies
  • $825 million for Community Health Centers and Rural Health Clinics
  • Up to $1 billion may be used to cover costs of testing for the uninsured

I will continue to update you on this legislation and the coronavirus as more information becomes available. It is an honor to serve you in the U.S. Congress.

Best regards,

Greg Walden

Seniors on Social Security are Eligible for Payments

As soon as the middle of April, most Americans will receive a payment of $1,200 per individual, $2,400 per couple, and $500 per child directly to their bank account via direct deposit thanks to the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security (CARES) Act Download the subtitles for Frozen Open. As with any new program, there has been some confusion about how it will work, and I wanted to share some details for clarification.

You may have heard conflicting information about whether seniors are eligible for these payments Samsung Restore Solution 8. Seniors on Social Security ARE eligible for this payment. As long as your income does not exceed $99,000 for individuals or $198,000 for married couples, you can receive a payment 9mm.

Additionally, if you are on Social Security and you have not filed taxes recently, you DO NOT need to file anything with the IRS to get your payment Emper. The IRS will use the information from the SSA-1099 or RRB-1099 forms to generate your payment.

The IRS plans to send these payments by direct deposit Download the seventh son. If you don’t have your banking information on file with the IRS don’t worry! They will also be sending out some checks or debit cards, although these will take longer to arrive. The Treasury Department is also planning to develop a web-based portal for you to provide your banking information should you wish to receive the payment via direct deposit instead of via mail.

Unfortunately, the number of scammers taking advantage of the COVID-19 crisis has seen an uptick. The Treasury Department will NOT ask you to pay anything for this payment and will not contact you for your bank account information. If you are contacted by someone claiming to be from the government asking for this type of information you can report it to www.ftc.gov/complaint. You can learn more about how to protect yourself from these type of scams here.

I will continue to provide information about these payments as it becomes available. For additional information about the economic impact payment you can visit the IRS website here.

An Update on Coronavirus Relief Funding

  ABOUT GREG ISSUES CONTACT NEWS LEGISLATION  
Today, President Trump signed into law The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, which is the third relief package for the nation’s COVID-19 response efforts In-effect download with God. Earlier today, I voted in support of the bill. The legislation unanimously passed both the House and Senate.

I was proud to help write and pass the rescue package and to stand next to the President when he signed it into law Love Simon. This package is not the first response to the COVID-19 pandemic, nor will it be the last.  The American people expect us to set partisanship aside in times of crisis and do what’s best for the country and our constituents.  That’s what we’re doing today. 
 
We’re helping health care workers on the front lines back home get the personal protective equipment they need and the medicines and medical devices that will save the lives of their patients.  We’re helping people who have lost their jobs get a lifeline.  We’re helping our small businesses keep their workforce together Download The Kingdom 1 book. And we’re making record investments into finding treatments and a cure. We’re helping our state and local governments, too.  
 
We’re all in this together, and with President Trump’s leadership, we’re all in this to win as fast as medically possible. 
 
In order to prevent our health system from collapsing under the weight of this virus, we will provide unprecedented support for our nation’s health care providers, including $100 billion for hospitals, labs, doctors, and increased reimbursement for treating COVID-19 patients.   
 
We will dramatically expand production and distribution of medical supplies, by providing liability protections through the PREP Act for respirator manufacturers, providing $16 billion for the Strategic National Stockpile to procure medical countermeasures, such as personal protective equipment (PPE), and ventilators, and providing $11 billion for the manufacturing, production, and purchase of vaccines, therapeutics, diagnostics, and other items to address the nation’s medical or preparedness needs. 
 
The CARES Act opens up the fastest computers in the world at our National Labs for research and analysis related to the COVID-19 virus tigervnc 다운로드. We help EPA expedite the ability to get disinfectants to market more quickly to protect the public from COVID-19 and prevent its further spread. And in a volatile oil market, the CARES Act smartly delays a mandatory 2020 sale of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve through 2022. 
 
Included in this package are improvements to expand access to care through telehealth, including $200 million for the FCC for telehealth services and devices, and an expansion of telehealth services in the Medicare program. 
 
The package also extends vital Medicare, Medicaid, and Public Health Programs — including Community Health Centers among many others until Nov Download the movie graduation. 30 of this year. The CARES Act also provides an additional $1.32 billion in supplemental funding to community health centers on the front lines of testing and treating patients in rural and underserved communities for COVID-19. The bill also prevents pending cuts to Disproportionate Share Hospitals (DSH). 
 
And we are mobilizing the nation’s health workforce, by providing liability protections to those who provide volunteer medical services during the public health crisis, and by standing up the Ready Reserve Corps component of the U.S. Public Health Service Commissioned Corps to help address provider shortages across the nation.    And we take steps to protect our medical supply chain, something that I hope the Congress will continue to work on.
 
Today’s phase three approach is the most comprehensive and robust response to COVID-19 yet. This will not be the last package Congress passes to address this crisis. Working together we will beat this virus and get Americans healthy and working, again.

I will continue to provide updates and resources. I am in constant contact with local and federal officials and will continue to provide updates on my COVID-19 resource page. Additionally, you can stay updated by following my Twitter @RepGregWalden or my Facebook page @RepGregWalden.
