The Prioritized Paycheck Protection Program Act (P4) was approved on 7/1/20, extending the window for business owners to apply for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans to August 8, 2020. As of 7/1/20, PPP had approximately $135 billion left. P4 also decouples PPP from SBA’s 7(a) lending program and may allow some small business borrowers to apply for a second PPP loan. Contact your local SBDC (see below) if you need assistance.
