Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loans

The CARES Act Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) allocated nearly $660 billion to assist small businesses, eligible organizations and self-employed individuals amid the COVID-19 pandemic and economic turndown. The program has seen several modifications since its initial passage and President Trump recently signed into law the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act. This act created greater flexibility for the program and will result in a greater portion of PPP loans receiving full forgiveness. The legislation also provides an option to extend the time period for spending PPP funds to 24 weeks and reduces the payroll expenditure requirement from 75% to 60%.

Please note the PPP application deadline was June 30, 2020. Based upon recent guidance, we are preparing to assist you with the program’s forgiveness phase. In the meantime, we ask for your continued patience as we wait to receive SBA direction on how to submit forgiveness decisions for payment. Below you will find links to programmatic information and application forms. We will update this page as new information and guidance becomes available.
