Help PLUS1 apply for the Paycheck Protection Program

This will allow PLUS1 to stay open and continue to unlock an average of 2.5M in novel funding for our nonprofit partners.

Posted April 3, 2020

We are looking for help in navigating the Paycheck Protection Program and making sure that we meet all of the requirements to have the loan forgiven. Our first hurdle is finding someone to accept our application. We have contacted our bank as the SBA suggested and they are only accepting applications from banking customers with current loan relationships. We’ve never had a loan with them, so unfortunately they will not allow us to apply. I’ve spoken with two other banks that have similar requirements in place. We’re looking for guidance on if there are any lenders that would allow us to apply, and how we could find them Any assistance would be extremely appreciated.

Project Plan

Preparation Phase

  • Intro call with CEO and COO to explain situation

Collaboration Phase

  • Verify that PLUS1's application and calculations meet the criteria for forgiveness prior to filing
  • Assist in finding banks that will take new clients and do not require a previous loan
  • Complete research on Payroll Protection Program

Wrap Up

  • If loan is approved, verify forgiveness application calculations meet criteria set forth in the act
