H.R. 1651 extends for one year all of the bankruptcy-related provisions that were included in the CARES Act passed on March 27, 2020. These provisions will now expire on March 27, 2022. This includes the ability of a chapter 13 debtor to modify and extend a chapter 13 plan to a term of up to 7 years if needed, due to COVID-19 connected economic hardship. The bill also makes all debtors with chapter 13 plans that were confirmed by March 27, 2021 eligible for this relief.
