Under the Economic Aid Act, the U.S. Congress has reauthorized the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The Paycheck Protection Program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on payroll.
The program is divided into two separate loan types. This is represented by First Draw or Second Draw loans.
The First Draw program is for any borrower that has not received a PPP loan previously. The Second Draw program is for any borrower that has already received a PPP loan under the CARES Act of 2020.
First Draw PPP Loans and Second Draw PPP Loans can be used to help fund payroll costs, including benefits, and may also be used to pay for mortgage interest, rent, utilities, worker protection costs related to COVID-19, uninsured property damage costs caused by looting or vandalism during 2020, and certain supplier costs and expenses for operations.
