- Initially, only community financial institutions will be able to provide PPP loans on Monday, Jan. 11, and second round PPP loans on Wednesday, Jan. thirteen. The program will reopen to other afterward.

Congress authorized up to $284 billion toward the small business loan program as part of the sweeping Covid relief act which went into effect near the end of 2020.
That measure even included more aid for businesses which are small in the form of tax deductibility for expenses covered by PPP, as well as tax credits for firms which kept their workers on payroll and simplified forgiveness for loans below $150,000.
This time, the SBA and Treasury Department have staggered the reopening.
