The initial PPP funding ran out, but the PPP program was re-funded for a second round of loan capital. The original application deadline for PPP loan applications HAS BEEN EXTENDED to August 8, 2020. 

You may still apply for your PPP loan but you absolutely must hurry. The deadline for PPP loan applications is now August 8, 2020.

On June 5, 2020, President Trump signed into law new updates to PPP loan forgiveness requirements, extending the covered period to 24 weeks, reducing the minimum loan funding that must be spent on payroll to 60%, and easing the requirements for maintaining staffing and compensation levels.

It doesn’t cost anything to apply for a PPP loan

By law, it’s free for borrowers to apply for PPP loans. You should not be charged anything by your lender or loan facilitator to complete or submit your PPP loan.

If your local SBA-approved lender is no longer accepting applications, you can apply for free via Womply

Many larger banks may have stopped accepting PPP loan applications due to the new rules establishing a maximum amount of capital per PPP lender or for other reasons, but you can still apply elsewhere. We recommend you start your free application here.

100% PPP loan forgiveness is now easier to achieve

The new Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act, signed into law on June 5, 2020, has lowered the minimum amount of PPP funds that must be spent on payroll to meet full forgiveness from 75% to 60%, extended the loan repayment deferment period, extended the deadlines for rehiring or repairing payroll cuts, and other important changes.
