To all of our small business owners who have been impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic: on January 13, the SBA began accepting applications for Second Draw PPP Loans. If you have not yet discussed this with your bank, here is some helpful information from the Small Business Administration on what you need to know, and if you qualify for the second round of PPP funding.


Loan details
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) now allows certain eligible borrowers that previously received a PPP loan to apply for a Second Draw PPP Loan with the same general loan terms as their First Draw PPP Loan. 

Second Draw PPP Loans can be used to help fund payroll costs, including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay for mortgage interest, rent, utilities, worker protection costs related to COVID-19, uninsured property damage costs caused by looting or vandalism during 2020, and certain supplier costs and expenses for operations.

Maximum loan amount and increased assistance for accommodation and food services businesses

For most borrowers, the maximum loan amount of a Second Draw PPP Loan is 2.5x average monthly 2019 or 2020 payroll costs up to $2 million. For borrowers in the Accommodation and Food Services sector (use NAICS 72 to confirm), the maximum loan amount for a Second Draw PPP Loan is 3.5x average monthly 2019 or 2020 payroll costs up to $2 million.


Who may qualify
A borrower is generally eligible for a Second Draw PPP Loan if the borrower: 

  • Previously received a First Draw PPP Loan and will or has used the full amount only for authorized uses

  • Has no more than 300 employees

  • Can demonstrate at least a 25% reduction in gross receipts between comparable quarters in 2019 and 2020


How and when to apply
You can apply for a Second Draw PPP Loan from January 13, 2021, until March 31, 2021. The SBA is currently accepting Second Draw PPP loan applications from participating lenders. Lender Match can help connect you with a lender. You can also view all lenders near you on a map. All Second Draw PPP Loans will have the same terms regardless of lender or borrower.
