PPP Funds Still Available
For those who haven’t applied yet for the federal government’s Paycheck Protection Program, Seedcopa + SeedcoDE is being notified that there is still funding available as round two of the program continues.
The SBA resumed accepting Paycheck Protection Program applications from participating lenders on Monday, April 27th. As of this Wednesday, 5,422 lenders were participating with 2,441,369 approved loans totaling $183,525,851,829. Applications and the latest updates are available here.
Cancelling Additional Applications
Please note: If you applied to more than one bank for a PPP loan and are now confirmed that you’ve been approved – please cancel any outstanding applications with other banks. That will save bankers a lot of time, so they can attend to other small businesses still awaiting approval.
