First Round of PPP and New Round of PPP Updates & Information

With information changing rapidly, it is important to stay up to date on PPP applications, eligibility, and forgiveness.

The second round portal opened on 1.11.2021 and is currently open for those who did not receive any first round PPP. The portal opens for everyone on 1.13.2021.

Please note that forgiveness for the first PPP is being put on hold because the banks want to concentrate on new rounds of applications.

Organizations that have already received PPP during the first round and want to apply for the second round are advised to go through the SAME financial institution as they will already have your information.

The folks at M&T bank have done a great job at simplifying this information. You can see their PPP comparison here.

If you haven’t provided your 2020 information, it is imperative to get this information to us as quickly as possible, in order to be able to determine the 25% loss.
