Apply for SBA loan

Last update: Apr 6, 2020 @ 5:52 PM  

Looking for a CARES Act SBA 7(a) Payroll Protection Program (PPP) loan? 

** Breaking News – 4/6/20 – Various media outlets including CNBC are reporting that the SBA’s E-tran system, to which banks utilize to submit their PPP loan applications, has been crashing today resulting in many PPP loans not being received by the SBA.

Where do I apply?

Many banks, credit unions, and other FDIC-insured financial institutions are eligible to participate in the CARES Act SBA 7(a) PPP loan program. Some may initially just work with their current banking customers and then expand to others, whereas some may accept anyone. In addition to traditional financial institutions, there are other financial institutions and non-bank SBA lenders who are building portal sites for processing PPP applications. Also, some large FinTech companies would like to participate as well but need Treasury approval to do so, which some Congressional leaders are encouraging. Note: April 10th is the start date for independent contractors and self-employed.
