MadREP Report | April 29, 2020
The PPP program has reopened as of 9:30 Monday morning. If you applied for the PPP and were not funded before they ran out of money, please call your lender to see what you need to do next.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has indicated that you will need to submit a new application if you were not assigned a loan number. In other words, if you were not approved, the application needs to be resubmitted.

SBA did not keep a "queue" of the submitted applications but your lender likely did. Conversations with several local lenders indicated that they have kept applications but it is strongly suggested businesses call to make sure that they still have them and that they will be resubmitting.

Good luck and stay well!!! ( Source: Ed White, Sauk County Development Corp.)
