New PPP applicants FAQ


If you did not draw from the first round of the Paycheck Protection Program in 2020, and you are a SVB Private client, you will now be able to apply for a first draw PPP loan.

Am I eligible?

To be deemed eligible for a PPP loan your businesses must

  1. Have been in operation on February 15, 2020; and
  2. Be a small business or non-profit 501(c)3 with fewer than 500 employees (including sole proprietors, independent contractors, self-employed persons, private non-profit organization, or 501(c)(19) veterans organizations, 501(c)(6) organizations that meet certain criteria, housing cooperatives, direct marketing organizations, and certain non-profit news organizations).

In addition to the above, SVB Private requires that you are a business banking client with a SVB Private deposit account open in the name of the applicant business as of January 1, 2021.
