In an effort to reach the smallest businesses, applications are being accepted for the Paycheck Protection Program specifically from businesses with fewer than 20 employees and sole proprietors through next Tuesday March 9th.

This limited application time for businesses with less than 20 employees is open for first draw and second draw PPP loans.
