2021 PPP Funds run out, SBA stops applications

Almost a month before the $292 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) submission deadline, the US Small Business Administration (SBA) has stopped accepting new applications from most lenders.

The SBA informed lenders that the PPP general fund was depleted, with just $8 billion set aside for cooperative financial institutions left for new applications (CFIs).

The fund exhaustion was revealed on Tuesday, May 4th, just weeks after the PPP was extended until the end of May to give borrowers additional time to qualify for forgivable loans.

Have Womply funds ran out

Yes, Womply has ran out of PPP funds.

But PPP applications that have been accepted by the SBA are also being processed.

Over the lifetime of the PPP scheme, the SBA has approved over $780 billion in forgivable loans to over 10.7 million borrowers, but the need is still great. There are 2.5 million borrowers waiting for their applications to be completed, accepted, and financed by Womply’s systems alone.
