Understanding PPP and EIDL Stimulus Programs

Navigating the various programs enacted in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic can be daunting. We want to make sure you have access to the most relevant and easy-to-understand resources available.

Also, the SBA recently released the PPP loan forgiveness application. The application clarifies and simplifies the CARES Act guidelines and eases the burden on small businesses. In general, the loan should be forgivable if used within an 8-week period in the following manner:

  1. 75% of loan proceeds used for payroll and benefits
  2. Remaining 25% generally used for rent, utilities and interest on debt obligations

The chart below highlights the key differences between the two programs available: Additional information can be found on the SBAs COVID-19 small business guidance page.
