Paycheck Protection Program Round 2

February 26, 2021 @ 1:00 pm - 2:30 pm

Freelancer at desk


Join our instructors – who together have advised hundreds of clients on their same day loans and PPP loan and forgiveness applications – to learn more about PPP first- and second-draw loan eligibility requirements, permitted uses of PPP funds, tips for applying for forgiveness, and insight into the SBA’s regulation of the program.

Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) Round 2: On December 27, 2020, the federal government made available $284.5 billion in new Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”) funding for first- and second-draw PPP loans. If used promptly to pay eligible expenses, a PPP loan never has to be repaid. Self-employed individuals, nonprofits, and microbusinesses that have been financially impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic should carefully consider whether they qualify for a first- or second-draw PPP loan. PPP loan applications will be accepted by the SBA through March 31, 2021, or until funds for the program are exhausted.
