Small businesses adversely impacted by the pandemic now have the opportunity to apply for additional PPP funds in the form of a Second Draw PPP Loan. These loans are designed for small businesses, sole proprietors, independent contractors and non-profits who have exhausted their initial PPP loan. The SBA has issued initial guidance surrounding this new round of funding, which can be found here. We encourage interested borrowers to review the SBA’s website as well as the information below to determine eligibility.
