Right now, we know of no banks that are taking applications for PPP. They are currently working with the SBA to put together the applications and process. We are currently hearing they will be ready around April 13. We believe all SBA lenders will ultimately participate in the program, including large banks like Wells Fargo, Chase, Citibank, US Bank, etc. We will update the list for ones that our startups typically work with as soon as we have more info. In the meantime, below is a list of lenders that we are aware are participating in the PPP loan program.
