PPP Self-Employed Application Changes & NASE Supports SBA Event to Inform Self-Employed Business Owners

On March 3, 2021, the Small Business Administration announced changes to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) for self-employed individuals.

The changes include: 

  • Self-employed business owners with no employees will be eligible for a loan equal to their 2019 or 2020 gross income, divided by 12, multiplied by 2.5. 
  • Self-employed and sole proprietors can also refinance an EIDL Loan made between January 31 and April 3, 2020. 
  • New timeframe to apply provides a dedicated 2-week window, starting Wednesday, February 24, where only businesses with fewer than 20 employees will be able to apply for PPP loans.
  • Establishes a $1 billion set aside for these businesses without employees located in low- and medium-income areas
  • Expands PPP eligibility to small business owners with non-fraud felony convictions
