The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) recently made changes to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to ensure America’s smallest businesses get exclusive access. Through March 9 the SBA will only accept PPP applications from businesses with fewer than 20 employees. On March 10, the program opens to all eligible entities; businesses with fewer than 20 employees may still apply. First draw and second draw loans are still available. The Houston District Office of the SBA has published a list of area lenders. Applications are due March 31. Learn more.
