Congress recently passed a second round of COVID-19 relief that includes approx. $300B allotted to the Small Business Association for small business lending programs and will allow the hardest hit small businesses to receive second forgivable PPP loans.
This new relief package includes:
- Additional funding for new PPP loans
- The option to obtain a second PPP loan for small businesses facing large revenue declines in any 2020 quarter
- $20 million for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program
- $15 billion for live venues, independent movie theaters and cultural institutions
- Loan eligibility for Section 501(c)(6) not-for-profit organizations for the first time
- A material change from existing IRS guidance for business expenses paid with forgiven PPP loans
Updated Paycheck Protection Program
The updated Paycheck Protection Program has a few changes. During this round, small businesses with 300 or fewer employees can access forgivable loans. These loans can be used for payroll costs, employee compensation, insurance premiums and group healthcare benefits, rent, utilities, and more.
Eligibility for Second Round PPP Loans
The second round of PPP loans are available to first-time qualified borrows and borrowers that previously received a PPP loan. PPP loans are limited to business that:
- Employ less than 300 employees or meet an alternative size standard
- Have used the entire amount of their first PPP loan
- Had revenue during Q1, Q2, or Q3 2020 that were at least 25% less than the revenue from the same quarter in 2019
