What is the Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program?
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a federal relief program established by Congress and implemented by the U.S. Treasury Department and the Small Business Administration (SBA) to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll during the COVID-19 crisis. Businesses can apply through any existing SBA 7(a) lender, such as Community State Bank.
What’s a First Draw PPP Loan and a Second Draw PPP Loan?
In general, a First Draw PPP loan is for eligible borrowers who did not receive a PPP loan before the program closed in August 2020. A Second Draw PPP loan is for certain eligible borrowers that previously received a PPP loan, generally have 300 employees or less, and have suffered a 25% reduction in gross receipts in any quarter (or an annual comparison) of 2020 compared to 2019.
The government allocated funds for the SBA PPP program have been exhausted. Due to this fact, CSB is not currently accepting applications for PPP loans.
