Update May 2021 on PPP
PPP ran out of funding today
No one expected this (not even White House staff) and it’s incredibly disappointing. More than 1.5m eligible small business owners who applied through selected banks are not yet approved.
We need your help
You must contact President Biden, the SBA, your Senators, and your Representative to tell them you want more PPP funding. If they don’t hear directly from small businesses, independent contractors, and sole proprietors, they will cancel this program forever.
We’re not giving up
We believe that if the President and Senators hear from you, they will act. So some banks will continue accepting and processing PPP applications in anticipation of Congress doing the right thing. We’ll keep working until every legitimate SBA-approved business gets funded. Unlike the big banks, we’re not just going to move on.
More than 980,000 businesses have received PPP through several approved institutions.
