The Biden-Harris administration is announcing several reforms to further target the PPP to the smallest businesses and those that have been left behind in previous relief efforts.   

Specifically, the Biden-Harris administration will: 

  • The deadline to apply is now May 31. The law also extends authorization of loans to June 30.  
  • Allowed sole proprietors, independent contractors, and self-employed individuals to receive more financial support by revising the PPP’s funding formula for these categories of applicants  
  • Biden-Harris administration revised the loan calculation formula for these applicants so that it offers more relief and establishes a $1 billion set aside for sole proprietors located in low-and moderate-income (LMI) areas. 
  • Eliminated an exclusionary restriction on PPP access for small business owners with prior non-fraud felony convictions 
  • Eliminated PPP access restrictions on small business owners who have struggled to make student loan payments by eliminating student loan debt delinquency as a disqualifier to participating in the PPP 
  • Ensured access for non-citizen small business owners who are lawful U.S. residents by clarifying that they may use Individual Taxpayer Identification Number (ITIN) to apply for the PPP 
  • The PPP statute is clear that all lawful U.S. residents may access the program, but a lack of guidance from the SBA has created inconsistency in access for ITIN holders like Green Card holders or those here on a visa. Eligible applicants cannot be denied access to the PPP because they use ITINs to pay their taxes.
