The Paycheck Protection Program ends on August 8, 2020. We will stop sending applications to lenders on August 7, 2020 at 10:00 PM EDT/8:00 PM MDT. We anticipate that an extension to the deadline for the Paycheck Protection Program may pass in the coming days. Lendio will continue to accept applications in the interim and, if Congress passes an extension, Lendio will submit your application to our lenders when the Paycheck Protection Program resumes.
