Paycheck Protection Program

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a loan designed by the US Govt, and implemented by the SBA, to provide a direct and immediate incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll, and thus avoid large scale job losses, because the SMBs create over 50% of the total jobs across America.

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.

You can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender, or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating. Other regulated lenders will be available to make these loans once they are approved and enrolled in the program.

Lenders may begin processing loan applications as soon as April 3, 2020.
The Paycheck Protection Program will be available through June 30, 2020.
Please check with your local lender whether it’s participating in the program.
