There's still time to apply for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

There is over $130 billion dollars of PPP funding left and the new application deadline is August 8, 2020.  Here's what you should know:


1. Over 5000 lenders are participating in the Paycheck Protection Program

To apply, connect with a participating PPP lender to submit an application for this forgivable loan.  A variety of lenders are participating in the program including credit unions, fintech, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs) and other community lenders.  Click on the link below for the participating lenders in Arizona or use SBA's Lender Match tool.

2. You can use the new how-to guide to calculate your maximum PPP loan amount.

The PPP loan is designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. The loan will be fully forgiven if the funds are used for payroll costs (at least 60% of the forgiven amount), interest on mortgages, rent and utilities. Check out this recently released guidance to assist you in calculating payroll costs.

3. Several types of organizations and individuals are eligible to apply for the PPP.

More than just small businesses are eligible for PPP funds. Tribal businesses, nonprofits, faith-based organizations, sole proprietors, independent contractors and those who are self-employed are among those who can benefit from this forgivable loan program. Eligibility has also been expanded for businesses with owners who have past felony convictions. 

Who can apply


4.  Forgiveness applications and instructions have been simplified.

PPP loan forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels. The loan forgiveness form and instructions were recently revised to reduce compliance burdens and simplify the process for borrowers. This includes step-by-step instructions and an EZ Loan Forgiveness Application option.
