Assessing Financial Support for Businesses During the Pandemic


September 29, 2020
2:30 PM - 3:30 PM



Even as many of the healthiest businesses reopen, concerns about the future under the ongoing threat of coronavirus remain. Against this backdrop, financial relief may be as urgent as ever.

Join the American Action Forum for a question and answer session covering financial relief available to businesses and threats to businesses going forward.

Key topics will include:

  • The impact and success of the Paycheck Protection Program and the Federal Reserve’s emergency lending programs, particularly the Main Street Lending Program;
  • Pandemic business interruption insurance and the potential for a federal pandemic program; and
  • Protecting businesses from shouldering excessive costs due to the new field of coronavirus litigation.
