Paycheck Protection Program

2021 Paycheck Protection Program Information 

The Small Business Administration, in consultation with the U.S. Treasury Department, opened the Paycheck Protection Program loan portal on Monday, Jan. 11. The PPP is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. SBA will forgive loans if all employee retention criteria are met, and the funds are used for eligible expenses.

The PPP loan portal system is initially accepting First Draw PPP and Second Draw PPP loan applications from participating CFIs, which include Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs), Certified Development Companies (CDCs), and Microloan Intermediaries.

Loan Details


You can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender or through any federally insured depository institution, federally insured credit union, and Farm Credit System institution that is participating. Other regulated lenders will be available to make these loans once they are approved and enrolled in the program. You should consult with your local lender as to whether it is participating in the program.
