As of April 15, many small businesses are getting turned away because the $359 billion of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding has been exhausted. But that doesn’t mean the program is over! Congress is expected to pass a $484 billion relief package on Thursday, including about $350 billion to replenish the PPP loan program.
Many businesses are having trouble applying for the PPP because they must have had a business checking account before February 15, 2020. However, what if you don’t have a business checking account? Or like me, is with a bank that doesn’t offer the PPP program.
I will offer you a few alternatives. Below is a list of banks and fintech lenders that are accepting applications from new customers.
