SBA - Paycheck Protection Program



Paycheck Protection Program

 The information contained in this page is based on laws, rules, regulations, and related guidance with respect to the Paycheck Protection Program, including guidance issued by the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) on June 26, 2020. We will periodically update this information, so please check back often. You may even want to consider bookmarking this page.

On June 5, 2020, the “Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act” (Flexibility Act) was passed and makes various changes to the PPP. The Flexibility Act aims to provide small businesses with more time to spend loan funds and qualify for loan forgiveness.

In the event of any discrepancies between the information on this site and the SBA’s site, please follow official SBA guidance.
