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.

What Is the Paycheck Protection Program?

Recently added as an SBA loan program, the Paycheck Protection Program provides federally-guaranteed loans to eligible small businesses. Loans can be up to $10 million and may be partially forgivable. These loans are intended to help small businesses retain employees throughout and after the Coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis.

As dictated by the CARES Act, the SBA will commit to helping small business owners across America borrow $349 billion. The Paycheck Protection Program covers operational expenses beginning February 15, 2020 and ending on June 30, 2020.

You can apply for your Paycheck Protection Program loan as early as Friday, April 3, 2020.


Is Your Small Business Eligible for the Program?

The CARES Act has expanded the eligibility criteria for borrowers to qualify for a Paycheck Protection Program loan. Any qualified small business, nonprofit organization, veterans organization, or tribal business is eligible to review a loan if the business employs 500 or fewer people.


How Can You Use Your Paycheck Protection Program Loan?

The loan may only be used for:

  • Payroll costs and employee commissions or similar compensations
  • Insurance premiums and group healthcare benefits during paid sick, family, or medical leave
  • Mortgage interest payments (but not prepayment or payment of mortgage principal)
  • Commercial space rent and utilities
  • Interest on any other debt obligations incurred before the covered period
