Paycheck Protection Program Update:

The Covid Relief Bill signed into law December 27, 2020 provides an additional $284.5 billion in funding for the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

MBO Partners has partnered with TransPecos Banks, a Texas state savings bank headquartered in San Antonio, to be a preferred partner for MBO members to obtain First and Second draw Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans.

We look forward to helping both our independent professional community more broadly access these important funds so they can continue to have the freedom to do the work they love, the way they want.

The new legislation makes the following funding available through the Paycheck Protection Program.

Other loan providers have also begun accepting applications. Because funding the time period is limited, we've provided a suggested partner link to streamline your application.

First Draw PPP Loans

The “First Draw” PPP loan is open to businesses with 500 or fewer employees that have not previously received a PPP loan. They can apply to borrow up to 2.5 times average monthly payroll. Eligibility requirements apply.

Second Draw PPP Loans

The “second draw” loans are available to businesses who already used the full amount of their first PPP loan for permitted purposes and can demonstrate at least a 25 percent reduction in gross receipts in the first, second, third, or fourth quarter of 2020 relative to the same 2019 quarter or for calendar year 2020 as compared to calendar year 2019. Special rules apply for a business formed in 2020.

You can use TransPecos for a second draw loan regardless of where you pursued your first draw; you’ll need your 10-digit SBA/E-Tran number from your first PPP loan to complete this application.
