Finding a PPP loan lender just got easier with our guide.

The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is back in business. On hold after running through its initial $349 billion allocation, the PPP received an additional $310 billion for loans. The interim stimulus bill sets aside $30 billion for small lenders (with consolidates assets less than $10 billion) and $30 billion for midsize lenders (with consolidated assets between $10 billion and $50 billion) to ensure that more rural, women-owned and minority-owned small businesses get loans this round. So if you missed out on a PPP loan the first time, you’ll want to calculate how much you can borrow, find a bank and start the application process right away. As of this morning, the Small Business Administration has given out roughly $510 billion. That means that roughly than $149 billion is left for loans. (The number has increased because some borrowers have returned their loans.)

To help business owners expedite finding a lender, SmartAsset is compiling the below list of PPP loan lenders and their application requirements (many banks are accepting applications only from current customers). We began with the most active banks in the Small Business Administration’s 7 (a) loan program (through which the PPP loans are administered) and will add other participating lenders, including small and midsize banks. (We added consolidated assets when they are less than $50 billion.)

A financial advisor can help you figure out your business plan for these difficult times. Speak with a financial advisor today.
