EXTENDING SUPPORT FOR AIRLINE WORKERS
The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, enacted on March 27, 2020, created the Payroll Support Program (PSP1) for air carriers and certain contractors. PSP1 provided assistance to over 600 companies, supporting hundreds of thousands of aviation jobs. The Consolidated Appropriations Act, 2021, enacted on December 27, 2020, created the Payroll Support Program Extension (PSP2) for passenger air carriers and certain contractors.

The application deadline for PSP2 was 11:59PM ET on Monday, January 25, 2021. Because the program is over-subscribed, Treasury has taken down the portal for new applications and will not consider applications that were not submitted through the portal.
