SBA Paycheck Protection Loan Program (PPP)

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.

Effective April 3, 2020 small businesses and sole proprietors can apply for and receive loans to cover their payroll and other certain expenses through existing SBA lenders. Click here to learn more about the Paycheck Protection Program. On April 22, 2020, Congress passed the Paycheck Protection Program Increase Act of 2020 to increase funding for the PPP from $359 billion to $659 billion. Read more here

On April 27, the SBA announced that it will now accept and process PPP loan Applications. Click here to read more.
