- The SBA has released official guidance for PPP loans
- Two Interim Final Rules clarify steps for both first and second-time borrowers
- When, where, and how to apply
The PPP application process is officially open as of Monday, January 11. The first two days will allow for smaller, community bank lenders and first-time borrowers to begin the process. Larger institutions will open at a still-unannounced later date; second-time borrowers will get a stab at the loan on January 13th, after first-timers have had their go.
Small businesses have until March 31 to apply for the loan but are recommended to apply sooner rather than later. The budget caps at $284 billion, and once the funds run dry, the loan is off the table.
Small Business Administration Guidance:
The SBA has released official guidance including two Interim Final Rulings (IFRs) as well as guidance for Accessing Capital for Minority, Underserved, Veteran, and Women-Owned Businesses.
- Business Loan Program Temporary Changes; Paycheck Protection Program as Amended by Economic Aid Act: The first IFR provides guidance for first-time borrowers, covering eight months of rules for forgivable PPP loans.
- Business Loan Program Temporary Changes; Paycheck Protection Program Second Draw Loans: The second IFR establishes the guidelines for all second-time borrowers.

The application process begins with the below forms (one for first-time borrowers and another for second-time borrowers).
