Get Started with the Paycheck Protection Program
Otto Bremer Trust is working with Community Reinvestment Fund, USA (CRF) to make Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans to small businesses and non-profit organizations.
CRF is a mission-driven, national nonprofit lender committed to helping organizations access responsible, sustainable capital.
If you did not receive a PPP loan in 2020, you can apply for a First Draw PPP loan this round.
If you already received a PPP loan, you may be eligible for a second PPP loan called a “Second Draw”.
If your organization may be eligible for the Shuttered Venue Operators grant program we recommend that you do NOT apply for a PPP loan until you have reviewed the information to consider the SVO grants. Applying for a PPP loan is likely to disqualify you from receiving this grant.
Eligible entities include:
- Live venue operators or promoters
- Theatrical producers
- Live performing arts organization operators
- Relevant museum operators, zoos and aquariums who meet specific criteria
- Motion picture theater operators
- Talent representatives, and
- Each business entity owned by an eligible entity that also meets the eligibility requirements
