This is the last week of the exclusive PPP loan application period for businesses and nonprofits with fewer than 20 employees. The SBA has also revised the PPP's funding formula to allow sole proprietors, independent contractors, and self-employed individuals to receive more financial support. Borrowers can apply for the Paycheck Protection Program by downloading the First Draw PPP loan application or Second Draw PPP loan application and working with a participating PPP lender through the SBA Lender Match tool.
