SBA Paycheck Protection Program
BLC will continue to support our nation's small businesses which are facing an unprecedented economic disruption due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak. The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on payroll.
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) now allows certain eligible borrowers that previously received a PPP loan to apply for a Second Draw PPP Loan with the same general loan terms as their First Draw PPP Loan.
If you have not previously applied for a PPP loan, then at this time you can apply for a First Draw PPP Loan. First Draw PPP Loans can be used to help fund payroll costs, including benefits, and may also be used to pay for mortgage interest, rent, utilities, worker protection costs related to COVID-19, uninsured property damage costs caused by looting or vandalism during 2020, and certain supplier costs and expenses for operations.
You can find more information about the First Draw PPP loan and eligibility at sba.gov.
