Editor's Note: This post was originally published on Jan. 5, 2021. It will be updated and republished daily, with the latest replay from our PPP Round 3 Prep and Launch Week Q&A Series.
This week likely represents the final days before the Small Business Administration relaunches the Paycheck Protection Program for new and Second Draw loans. With immense pressure to reopen it’s likely SBA guidance will be announced and even evolve in the week or so leading up to launch, while lenders are in the midst of preparing their teams for a new round of PPP lending.
Our insights team is here to play a supporting role during this prep and launch week by keeping you informed on the latest SBA guidance and regulations, providing you with Numerated Platform demos of new and updated PPP features, and by hosting daily Q&A sessions.
Join the more than 1,000 lenders that have attended our webinar series by registering once to save your seat for each of the daily Q&As from 1/8 - 1/29, here.
