April 8, 2020: What’s in the CARES Act and Does My Company Qualify for Stimulus Assistance?
In response to the economic fallout from the spread of the coronavirus across the U.S., Congress enacted the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, a stimulus package designed to infuse $2 trillion into the economy through loans, direct payments, expansion of unemployment benefits and tax relief which was signed into law by President Trump on March 27. While the CARES Act does not contain ethanol-specific provisions, there are certain programs which could benefit ethanol producers and other industry stakeholders. The American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE), along with experts from accounting and consulting firm Christianson PLLP and agribusiness financial services provider CoBank, provide an assessment of the CARES Act from the outlook of the ethanol industry — what’s in it and how do I seek possible opportunities?
