PPP application forms released

January 11, 2021

The US Small Business Administration and Treasury released borrower loan application forms Friday night for the rebooted Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which will launch Monday, initially for select lenders and borrowers before a broader opening takes place a few days later

The forms are Form 2483 – Paycheck Protection Program Borrower Application Form and Form 2483-SD – PPP Second Draw Borrower Application Form. Form 2483 is updated from previous iterations that started with the original PPP program. Form 2483-SD is a new form for qualified PPP borrowers to seek a second draw of  a forgivable loan as they try to navigate economic seas churning in the throes of the COVID-19 pandemic.

The SBA and Treasury also published top-line summaries of the first-draw and second-draw PPP loans and a pair of procedural notices.

The document release came after the SBA and Treasury announced earlier Friday that the application window for $284 billion in PPP forgivable loans would reopen Monday initially for community financial institutions (CFIs) that serve minority- and women-owned businesses to make loans. Specifically, CFIs can begin making loans to first-time PPP borrowers on Monday and second-time PPP borrowers on Wednesday.

The SBA and Treasury said the PPP would open to all lenders a few days after the opening for CFIs, but they did not specify a date.

Congress revived the PPP as part of the $900 billion COVID-19 relief bill that was signed into law on Dec. 27. The original PPP provided $525 billion in forgivable loans over five months before it stopped accepting applications in August. The new PPP has $284.5 billion available, including $35 billion for first-time loans and $15 billion set aside for community financial institutions.
