First draw PPP loans are for borrowers who haven’t received a PPP loan before August 8, 2020. Second draw PPP loans are for eligible small businesses with under 300 employees, that previously received a PPP loan and will use or have used the full amount for authorized uses, as well as showing at least a 25% reduction in gross receipts between comparable quarters in 2019 and 2020. The maximum amount of a second draw PPP loan is $2 million.
