CBP Launches COVID-19 Website

In order to streamline communications and support the trade community, CBP launched the  CBP COVID-19 Updates and Announcements webpage specifically dedicated to the most recent trade-related information and messaging on the impacts of COVID-19. 

Information found on the webpage includes Federal Register Notices and Cargo Systems Messaging Service communications related to COVID-19, as well as updates and announcements in trade programs and cargo security. 

Additionally, as many agencies are involved with enabling legitimate trade, the webpage includes links to partner government agencies' COVID-19 response websites. The page will be updated regularly to reflect the most current information available.

Paycheck Protection Program

The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities. 

The Paycheck Protection Program will be available through June 30, 2020.
