SBA Will Re-Open PPP to Small Lenders Friday, Jan. 15; Then to All Lenders Tuesday, Jan. 19

The SBA will re-open the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan portal to PPP-eligible lenders with $1 billion or less in assets for First and Second Draw applications this Friday. The portal will fully open Tuesday to all participating PPP lenders to submit First and Second Draw loan applications to the SBA.

Earlier in the week, the SBA granted dedicated PPP access to Community Financial Institutions (CFIs) which include Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs), Certified Development Companies (CDCs), and Microloan Intermediaries as part of the agency’s ongoing efforts to reach underserved and minority small businesses.


The SBA will continue its emphasis on reaching smaller lenders and businesses by opening to approximately 5,000 more lenders, including community banks, credit unions, and farm credit institutions.
 

What’s the Difference Between a First Draw PPP Loan and a Second Draw PPP Loan?


In general, a First Draw PPP loan is for eligible borrowers who did not receive a PPP loan before the program closed in August 2020. A Second Draw PPP loan is for certain eligible borrowers that previously received a PPP loan, generally have 300 employees or less, and have suffered a 25% reduction in gross receipts.
