An additional round of Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) funds was approved by Congress on April 24.

If you have not submitted an application, please read the information on this page to find out if you qualify to apply through Alaska USA.
Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Forgiveness Guidelines
The SBA released the PPP Forgiveness Application on Friday, May 15th. It can be viewed here.
Forgiveness eligibility is based on whether the employer maintains or quickly rehires employees and maintains salary levels, with forgiveness reductions if the number of full-time employees declines, or if salaries and wages decrease. Any balance that is not forgiven by the SBA will remain as a loan with a maturity of 2 years and an interest rate of 1%.
We encourage PPP recipients to read the SBA guidelines and maintain receipts, canceled checks, and other documentation reflecting how PPP loan funds were used.
