Required documents for Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan application

The SBA is no longer accepting applications for PPP loans. If you received a PPP loan through Kabbage, sign into your dashboard for updates on loan forgiveness.

The Paycheck Protection Program provides nearly $350 billion for small business cash-flow assistance through federally guaranteed loans. The loans can cover payroll support, employee salaries, rent, utilities and other debt obligations as America’s small businesses recover from the economic impacts of COVID-19.

Loans from the Paycheck Protection Program will be available for amounts equaling 2.5 times the average monthly payroll for a business, up to $10 million. Through Kabbage, small businesses can apply for PPP loans of up to $2 million. The funds are eligible for 100% forgiveness if your business follows the PPP’s forgiveness requirements issued by the Small Business Administration. To determine your business’s eligibility for one of these loans, we’ll need to look at your payroll costs in addition to other information about your business.

Before you start the application, here is a list of documentation you may need on hand.
