Banks Currently Accepting Payroll Protection Program Loan Applications

Update Feb. 22, 2021: From Feb. 24 to March 9, only businesses with 20 or fewer employees will be allowed to apply for Paycheck Protection Program loans. This move from the Biden administration is an attempt to provide access to businesses that previously struggled to obtain PPP loans. Additionally, some of the eligibility restrictions on who can apply for a PPP loan have been lifted. Read more here.


Congress approved $284.5 billion in new Paycheck Protection Program funding as part of a larger COVID-19 relief package that President Trump signed into law on Dec. 27.

Under the new package, additional types of businesses and industries have been made eligible for PPP loans, including housing and small agricultural cooperatives, 501(c)(6) organizations, and certain news outlets.

Furthermore, businesses that have no more than 300 employees, can demonstrate at least 25% reduction in annual gross receipts or in any 2020 quarter as compared to the same quarter in 2019, and have used or planned to use all of their first PPP loan may be eligible for a second PPP loan.

Here’s a roundup of banks, CDFIs, credit unions, and online lenders that are currently accepting applications for first- or second-draw PPP loans.
