SBA Payroll Protection Program

Overview

The federal funding establishes a $350 billion loan guarantee program for small businesses, which is an expansion of the SBA section 7(A) loans. The loans are intended to cover payroll expenses including: salary, wage, commission; payment for vacation, parental, family, medical, or sick leave; severance; health care benefits including premiums; retirement benefits; state and local payroll tax. 

If 75% of the loan is used for payroll costs, excluding costs over $100,000 on an annualized basis for each employee, in the 8 weeks following the date that the loan was given, the loan will be forgiven.

Applying for one of these loans does not preclude an application for the Economic Injury Disaster Loan through the SBA, which provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million.
