About the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

The Paycheck Protection Program is a crucial initiative aimed at providing financial assistance to small businesses affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. It aims to help employers maintain their workforce and cover essential expenses such as payroll, rent, and utilities. The program offers forgivable loans that can significantly support businesses during these challenging times.

What's New in Round 2?

The second round of the Paycheck Protection Program comes with several updates and improvements. Here are some key highlights:

Expanded Eligibility

In Round 2, the eligibility criteria have been expanded to include more types of businesses, including nonprofits, certain housing cooperatives, and business leagues. This expansion allows a wider range of entities to benefit from the program.

Increased Loan Amounts

The maximum loan amount has been increased, providing businesses with additional financial assistance. The loan amount is determined based on factors like payroll costs, revenue reduction, and industry-specific requirements.
