FAQ - Paycheck Protection Program Loan Data
What is the PPP loan and how is it calculated?
The PPP (Paycheck Protection Program) is an emergency disaster loan program administered by the SBA designed to provide funds to small businesses with under 500 employees who were affected by the 2020 Coronavirus epidemic.
Businesses who self-verified that they required the funds due to the epidemic were able to apply for a PPP loan equal to 2.5 times their average monthly payroll in 2019 (with different payroll windows available for seasonal or startup businesses). Yearly salaries are capped at $100,000 for payroll calculation purposes.
Companies can receive up to $10 million in forgivable PPP loans, and at least 4,840 companies across the US have received more than $5m.
What type of businesses qualify for the PPP?
The SBA has made the PPP available for all small businesses with under 500 employees, with some exceptions for restaurant or hospitality chains with more than 500 employees. Corporations, pass-through entities, independent contractors, and self employed individuals are all eligible for a PPP loan. Later clarification by the SBA discouraged public companies, or companies with significant assets or access to capital, from applying for the loan.
Are PPP loans forgivable or considered grants to the recipient businesses?
Recipients of the PPP loans can qualify to have their debt forgiven if within 8 or 24 weeks they use at least 60% of the funds for payroll costs, with the rest eligible to be spent on eligible business mortgage interest payments, business rent or lease payments, and business utility payments.
While there have been some concerns about the inability of certain business types to qualify for forgiveness, the vast majority of businesses are expected to have the majority or all of their PPP loan forgiven by the SBA, effectively making it a grant.
Why is this data publicly available?
The PPP is an emergency loan program administered by the Small Business Administration. Historically, information on all loans issued by the SBA is publicly available information and subject to release under the Freedom of Information Act.
While the SBA initially resisted releasing full data on PPP loan recipients, a data dump was finally released in late 2020 following lawsuits from news media and government transparency organizations.
All information displayed on this page is publicly available information under PPP loan guidelines, in compliance with 5 U.S.C. ยง 552 (Freedom of Information Act) and 5 U.S.C. ยง 552a (the Privacy Act) and is published unmodified, as provided by the SBA. FederalPay does not modify the data and makes no claims regarding its accuracy.
Any corrections or modifications to this data can only be made via the SBA. For more information, please see the FederalPay PPP Data Policy.
Are exact loan amounts shown for each company?
While the the original data released by the SBA redacted company information for PPP loans under $150,000, this data has been released following Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuits. FederalPay has published this updated data in full, for all companies that received a PPP loan.

Why are there misspellings, duplicate records, missing data, etc in this dataset?
The PPP data published on FederalPay is directly from the US Treasury Department / Small Business Administration , which received the data from each company's lender. Any misspellings or errors present in the SBA or the lender's systems will be reflected in the data shown here. Corrections can be requested by contacting the SBA directly, not FederalPay.
Business owner demographic information was an optional field on most bank's PPP applications, and thus the majority of loan records (over 80%) do not include this data. The SBA may require more accurate demographic information when companies file for PPP loan forgiveness.
There are also a number of instances where companies (either accidentially or intentionally) have received duplicate PPP loans, often through different lenders. In many cases this was caused by multiple applications being submitted in attempt to secure funding.
Cancelled PPP loans - including companies that withdrew their applications or cancelled their loans after receipt - do not appear in this dataset.
How can I report potential fraud regarding PPP loans?
Since the inception of the program dozens of cases of PPP fraud have been prosecuted by the Department of Justice, including cases where loans were filed for nonexistant companies, overstatement of employee or payroll amounts, etc.
If you wish to report a potential issue regarding a PPP loan to the Small Business Administration, you can use the SBA's Office of the Inspector General Hotline .
