The Department of Treasury has released the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) application and supplemental information, all available on its website. View more information below:

As a reminder, funds from this program:

  •  Can be used for employee salaries under $100,000, paid sick or medical leave, insurance premiums, and mortgage, rent and utility payments;
  • Are 100% forgivable if used for the above purposes; and
  • Are available to businesses or 501(c)(3) nonprofits with less than 500 employees, including sole-proprietors, independent contractors, and other self-employed individuals.

While the application and documentation requirements are simple, make sure you review all the documents before advising any clients. Additionally, consider your clients’ intentions with other Small Business Administration loan programs when advising them on funding possibilities.
