Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Sample Application Form

What is the Paycheck Protection Program and how much funding is available?

As part of the CARES Act, the Small Business Administration (“SBA”) will administrate the Paycheck Protection Program (“PPP”), which authorizes up to $349 billion in potentially forgivable loans to small businesses during the COVID-19 crisis. The PPP loan capital will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis starting April 3 and interested small businesses are encouraged to apply as soon as possible due to the likely high volume of applicants.
