Many businesses have continued to be negatively impacted by COVID-19. Your clients need additional money to keep things afloat and pay their employees, but their first PPP loan has run dry.
The Second Draw Paycheck Protection Program is an SBA loan program launched to help small businesses like these stay afloat during ongoing COVID-19 related restrictions and closures. Like first PPP loans, second PPP loans can also be forgiven.

Will your clients qualify for a second PPP loan?
Second Draw PPP loans are designed to help small businesses that continue to struggle with the impact of COVID-19. Here’s what to know about requirements for a Second Draw PPP loan:
- Business owners received a first PPP loan
- Businesses must have used the full amount of your first PPP loan for authorized uses by the expected date of disbursement of your second draw PPP loan.
- Businesses must have 300 or fewer employees. If they are an employer in accommodation or food services (NAICS code starting with 72), they may have 300 employees at each of your business’s physical locations.
- Businesses must be able to demonstrate a revenue reduction of 25% or greater in 2020 relative to 2019. This is calculated by comparing your quarterly gross receipts for one quarter in 2020 with your gross receipts for the corresponding quarter of 2019.
- Businesses cannot be permanently closed. If your client’s business has temporarily closed or suspended, they are eligible.
- Eligible business types include for-profit businesses, certain non-profits, independent contractors, sole proprietors, tribal businesses, and small agricultural coops.
