As of April 16, the $349 billion authorized for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) under the CARES Act has been exhausted, and the Small Business Administration (SBA) is no longer accepting applications for PPP loans.

Loan applications received by banks but not yet submitted to the SBA will not be processed by the SBA. The agency has stated that it will not maintain a queue for PPP applications in the event additional funds are authorized.

As for banks, it varies whether they are still accepting applications, and it’s up to each individual institution whether it will keep a queue of applications received but not yet submitted to the SBA.

Members of the government have encouraged Congress to enact more funding for the PPP, but Congress has yet to do so.
