The Small Business Administration’s Paycheck Protection Program loan launched on Friday, April 3—to a very mixed bag of results.

Banks and lenders were hard-pressed to get systems and application processes in place before the deadline, having only received further guidelines about how to actually issue and process the loans late on the eve of the program’s launch. And as of early Friday morning, the day of the launch, only one major bank—Bank of America—was able to begin accepting applications on its portal.

Since then, several banks and other lenders have begun accepting applications. You can also use the SBA’s resource to find lenders in your area. Here’s where you can currently apply:


Bank of America was the first major bank to get its portal up and running around 9 a.m. ET on Friday. Applicants can apply for the PPP loan on the BofA site.
