Which businesses are eligible? 

Generally, small businesses in operation on February 15, 2020 with no more than 500 employees are eligible for a Payroll Protection Program loan. This includes sole-proprietors, independent contractors, and other self-employed individuals. As with most lending programs, there are stipulations and limited exceptions that our seasoned lenders can explain in detail. 

How much are you able to apply for? 

The maximum loan amount is based on the business's average monthly payroll costs incurred during the one-year period before the date of the loan. Businesses may receive up to 2.5 times its average monthly payroll costs, subject to a $10 million limitation. To calculate your loan amount, take your prior year total payroll costs and divide it by 12. Then, multiply by 2.5 to yield your total loan amount. 

(Total payroll costs/12) x 2.5 = Total loan amount
