As of Friday, April 3, the Small Business Administration has opened up the Paycheck Protection Program loan applications. The application can be downloaded here

A few things to note: 

  • Please be patient with banks as they only just received guidance on processing the loans late Thursday night. 
  • The biggest change is that 1099 wages are now excluded from calculations.
