What is a Paycheck Protection (PPP) Loan?
PPP loans provide funds to small businesses to keep employees on payroll. The loan is forgiven if the employer keeps all employees on payroll for twenty-four weeks. The funds must be used directly for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities (at least 60% of the available funds must be used for payroll in order to have the loan forgiven by the SBA).
