What is the PPP?

In 2020 and 2021, many workers were negatively affected by changes to business caused by the global COVID-19 pandemic and related economic slowdowns.

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a $953-billion business loan program established by the federal government’s Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act in 2020 to supplement incomes lost or reduced due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

 

The first round of funding ended in August of 2020. The second round is currently open until March 31, 2020 with the potential for a newly extended deadline of May 31, 2021. Source
