Applying for a PPP Loan
Who Is Eligible?
Small businesses with 500 or fewer employees, including nonprofits, veterans organizations, tribal concerns, self-employed individuals, sole proprietorships, and independent contractors, are eligible. Businesses with more than 500 employees may be eligible in certain industries.
What is a 'Second Draw' PPP Loan?
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) now allows certain eligible borrowers that previously received a PPP loan to apply for a Second Draw PPP Loan with the same general loan terms as their First Draw PPP Loan. Second Draw PPP Loans can be used to help fund payroll costs, including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay for mortgage interest, rent, utilities, worker protection costs related to COVID-19, uninsured property damage costs caused by looting or vandalism during 2020, and certain supplier costs and expenses for operations.
Is My Business Eligible for a Second-Draw Loan, and Loan Forgiveness?
Second Draw PPP Loans made to eligible borrowers qualify for full loan forgiveness if during the 8- to 24-week covered period following loan disbursement:
- Revenues from 2019 have declined 25% in 2020 based on a quarterly comparison;
- Employee and compensation levels are maintained in the same manner as required for the First Draw PPP loan;
- The loan proceeds are spent on payroll costs and other eligible expenses; and
- At least 60 percent of the proceeds are spent on payroll costs.
How Do I Determine My Loan Amount?
Small businesses can apply for two and a half months of average monthly payroll expenses (calculated by taking the average monthly payroll cost from 2019 multiplied by 2.5). Businesses must exclude payroll that exceeds $100,000 per individual employee.

PPP Loan Forgiveness
We know that loan forgiveness is important to you and your business.
The entire amount of your PPP loan, plus accrued interest, could be forgiven, but it is important for you to know that loan forgiveness is not automatic.
Forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels. Forgiveness will be reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages decrease.
