Is Premier America participating in the Paycheck Protection Program to make Small Business Administration (SBA) backed loans available to small businesses?
Premier America has partnered with Lendio, and their vast network of lenders, to facilitate Paycheck Protection Program Loans. 

What is the purpose of the Paycheck Protection Program?
The program is a loan designed to provide a direct incentive for small businesses to keep their workers on the payroll. The SBA will forgive up to 100% of the loan if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities. Payroll costs must be 75% or more of your approved loan amount. Only 25% of the amount forgiven can be used on non-payroll expenses.

Who is the program designed for?
This program is for any small business with less than 500 employees (including sole proprietorships, independent contractors and self-employed persons), 501(c)(3) non-profit organizations, 501(c)(19) veterans organizations, or Tribal businesses (see sec. 31(b)(2)(C) of the Small Business Act) affected by coronavirus/COVID-19.

Where can I obtain information about the Paycheck Protection Program and what I need in order to apply?
You may visit our partner page for information on how the Paycheck Protection Program Loan can be used and the requirements. 

Do I need to be an existing Premier America member in order to apply for a Paycheck Protection Program Loan with Lendio?
No. Any small business owner who is not a member of Premier America may still use Lendio to apply for this SBA loan.
