SBA Relief Program Updates

Paycheck Protection Program

Paycheck protection program, PPP

After serving more than 8 million small businesses, general funding for the Paycheck Protection Program  (PPP) has been fully committed. The SBA will continue funding outstanding approved PPP applications, but new qualifying applications will only be funded through a set-aside for Community Financial Institutions (CFIs), including Certified Development Companies (CDCs), Microlenders, Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), and Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs). The PPP program will end when these funds are fully committed or on May 31, whichever comes first. 

Please note that not all institutions listed are currently participating in PPP.
