2nd round of PPP applications for small businesses underway

Submitted by the Cobb Chamber of Commerce:Cobb Chamber of Commerce

The U.S. Small Business Administration, in consultation with The U.S. Department of the Treasury, announced that the Paycheck Protection Program will re-open the week of January 11 for new borrowers and certain existing PPP borrowers.

To promote access to capital, initially only community financial institutions will be able to make First Draw PPP Loans on Monday, January 11, and Second Draw PPP Loans on Wednesday, January 13. The PPP will open to all participating lenders shortly thereafter. This round of the PPP continues to prioritize millions of Americans employed by small businesses by authorizing up to $284 billion toward job retention and certain other expenses through March 31, 2021, and by allowing certain existing PPP borrowers to apply for a Second Draw PPP Loan.
