The United States Department of Treasury continues to provide resources to answer questions and provide support for businesses that are looking to utilize the Payroll Protection Program.
They have recently released a FAQ document (updated March 2021) to address common inquiries and requests for information pertaining to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
Also, they have provided an easy to use link on Treasury website that allows users to find an eligible lender for PPP. As new lenders become eligible they are added.
Paycheck Protection Program
The Paycheck Protection Program prioritizes millions of Americans employed by small businesses by authorizing up to $349 billion toward job retention and certain other expenses.
Small businesses and eligible nonprofit organizations, Veterans organizations, and Tribal businesses described in the Small Business Act, as well as individuals who are self-employed or are independent contractors, are eligible if they also meet program size standards
