On May 4 at 5:00 p.m. CT the SBA closed the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) application portal. We are no longer accepting new PPP applications for First or Second Draw loans. If you currently have an application in process, please monitor your email for updates.
The U.S. Treasury Department has released updated guidance on the supporting documents and loan calculation instructions for this program. You can reference the updated guidelines from treasury.gov about how to calculate loan amounts for First Draw loans and how to calculate loan amounts for Second Draw loans.
You may apply regardless of whether you applied during the initial round in 2020, as long as you meet the current eligibility requirements set forth by the SBA for the current round of funding.
As long you meet all applicable eligibility requirements for a First Draw loan and eligibility requirements for a Second Draw loan, you may apply for both. However, because one requirement for a Second Draw loan is that the business has fully used all of the funds from the first loan, businesses may not simultaneously apply for both. We will accept applications for current customers nationwide and for non-customers in states where we operate branches.
As part of the SBA PPP application process, there is no credit check, no personal guarantee from business owners and no collateral requirements. Your business must meet the eligibility requirements of this program and provide supporting documentation to confirm the available loan amount for your company and such other documentation required under PPP rules. Upon submitting to this program, you certified that your business is eligible under the PPP.
Please know that we are working on your application and will be providing email updates throughout the process. We kindly ask that you allow up to three business days for us to review your initial application. You’ll be receiving email updates when it’s time for the next step in the process.
To make changes to information you entered on your application, please contact the Business Service Center at 800-673-3555.
We’ll be communicating updates on your application via email. If you have a passcode, you can also continue the application process by logging in to your account with your account ID or the passcode we sent via email.
Within a few days of submitting your initial application, you’ll receive an email with instructions and a link to access your loan portal. Within your loan portal, you’ll have the opportunity to upload your supporting documents. You may revisit this loan portal at any time to verify documents you have uploaded, provide additional information, and check the status of your application. If you have misplaced the original link that was sent to you, you may access the loan portal and request a passcode.
As a result of process changes required to support new rules in this phase of PPP funding and additional steps implemented by the SBA, applicants should be prepared for their loan applications to take some time for payroll verification and SBA approval. Once your loan is approved by the SBA, we will notify you that your loan is ready to sign. We will then distribute the funds to your account within 24 hours of signing.
If you would like to cancel your application, please call the Business Service Center at 800-673-3555 with your request. You’ll need to provide the full name of your business and the full owner’s name so we may reference your application.

On March 3, the SBA released new guidance under the Interim Final Rule on Revision to the Loan Amount Calculation and Eligibility. The new rules expand the relief opportunities provided by the program, most importantly:
The SBA has removed eligibility restrictions for businesses with owners who have non-financial fraud felony convictions in the last year, as well as for businesses with owners who are delinquent or in default on federal student loans.
No, you may choose any participating lender when applying for a Second Draw loan.
No, the eligibility for receiving a Second Draw loan does not include the requirement to have completed the forgiveness process on the first PPP loan. A business is, however, required to certify it has or will have used all funds from the first PPP loan (including any loan increase, if applicable) prior to receiving the proceeds from a second loan.
Per the SBA guidelines, a borrower will certify on the application that they have (or will) use all funds from their First Draw loan (including any loan increase, if applicable), but will not be required to submit documentation to validate this certification.
To make additional changes to your loan amount after we have conducted a review of your payroll documents, please contact the Business Service Center at 800-673-3555. You’ll be asked to provide additional documentation to support the loan amount adjustment.
Our initial application will allow you to enter an estimated loan amount and the steps for calculating that loan amount are below. Please note, you will be given an opportunity during the next phase of the application to confirm your payroll costs and adjust your calculated eligible loan amount.
An employee is defined as an individual that receives compensation through the company's payroll, regardless of full- or part-time status. Independent contractors, such as those individuals whose compensation is reported on a Form 1099-MISC (or Form 1099-NEC), are NOT considered employees, as they have the ability to apply for a PPP loan on their own.
