For those organizations that did not apply for COVID relief through the first round of the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), a second round begins today.

Key provisions include:

  • Borrowers can set the covered period of their PPP loan to be any length between 8 and 24 weeks to best meet their needs
  • Loans will cover additional expenses, including operations expenditures, property damage costs, supplier costs, and worker protection expenditures
  • Eligibility is expanded to include 501(c)(6)s, housing cooperatives, destination marketing organizations, among other types of organizations
  • Greater flexibility is provided for seasonal employees
  • Certain existing PPP borrowers can request to modify their first draw PPP loan amount
  • Certain existing PPP borrowers are now eligible to apply for a second draw PPP Loan.

A borrower is generally eligible for a second draw PPP loan if the borrower:

  • Previously received a first draw loan and will or has used the full amount only for authorized uses
  • Has no more than 300 employees
  • Can demonstrate at least a 25% reduction in gross receipts between comparable quarters in 2019 and 2020.
