PPP eligibility is also expanded for business owners with past felony convictions. The look-back period is reduced to one year for non-financial felonies that have been convicted, pleaded guilty, pleaded nolo contendere, or have been placed on any form of parole or probation (including probation before judgment). The period remains 5 years for felonies involving fraud, bribery, embezzlement, or a false statement in a loan application or an application for federal financial assistance. The application also eliminates pretrial diversion status as a criterion affecting eligibility.
