Paycheck Protection Program
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), is a loan through the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) that helps businesses keep their workforce employed during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis. For either up to eight or 24 weeks after the loan is made, this program can be used to cover the cost of payroll and other eligible expenses. At a minimum, 60% of the loan amount needs to be allocated towards payroll and the remaining 40% can be used for other eligible expenses.
The following entities affected by Coronavirus (COVID-19) may be eligible:
- Sole proprietors, independent contractors, and self-employed persons
- Any small business concern that meets SBA’s size standards (either the industry size standard or the alternative size standard)
- Any business, 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, 501(c)(19) veterans organization, or tribal business concern (sec. 31(b)(2)(C) of the Small Business Act) with the greater of:
- 500 employees, or
- That meets the SBA industry size standard if more than 500
- Any business with a NAICS code that begins with 72 (Accommodations and Food Services) that has more than one physical location and employs less than 500 per location
