  • PPP Second Draw Loan – Generally available to businesses with no more than 300 employees that have used the full amount of their first PPP loan and can demonstrate a 25 percent (25%) reduction in receipts in the first, second, third, or fourth quarter of 2020 relative to the same 2019 quarter. Per SBA guidelines, for a second draw PPP loan it's recommended that you submit your application through your original lender.
  • PPP Loan for first-time borrowers – Generally for businesses with 500 or fewer employees that have not previously received a PPP loan, businesses can apply to borrow up to 2.5 times average monthly payroll.

On February 22, 2021, the Biden-Harris administration announced several reforms to the existing new PPP loan program. The new reforms are not retroactive to any already funded PPP loan in 2021. We have received updated guidance from the SBA and working to update our processes and online application as quickly as possible. Members are still able to apply and submit their applications to us, but we are pausing submitting any applications to the SBA directly until the SBA platform is live with the new application and our application is aligned. Rest assured, any completed applications received by RCU by the deadline of 3/31 will be submitted to the SBA. We will continue to update our website with the latest information.
