Following the $2 trillion CARES Act that was passed in March 2020, congress approved a $900 billion COVID-Relief package back on December 21, 2020, also known as the “Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits and Venues Act”. It makes available approximately $284.5 billion in new Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funding and reopens the PPP for initial and second round loans to nonprofit organizations.

Your organization can apply for loans up to 2.5 times your average monthly payroll costs for the 12 months before applying. That includes calendar years 2019 or 2020. There is a cap of $10 million for the first draw PPP Loan and a $2 million cap for the second draw. Payroll costs are capped at $100,000 per year, per employee.
