With the new Covid-19 Stimulus Package, billions of dollars are being allocated for a second round of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding. On January 13, 2021 SBA began accepting applications for the Second Draw PPP Loans.

Second Draw PPP Loans can be used to help fund payroll costs, including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay for mortgage interest, rent, utilities, worker protection costs related to COVID-19, uninsured property damage costs caused by looting or vandalism during 2020, and certain supplier costs and expenses for operations.

  • Previously received a First Draw PPP Loan and will or has used the full amount only for authorized uses
  • Has no more than 300 employees; and
  • Loan demonstrate at least a 25% reduction in gross receipts between comparable quarters in 2019 and 2020
