PPP Reopens to Large Lenders Today
The U.S. government pressured large lenders to go live this week
The U.S. government is pressuring large lenders to go live this week with another round of a key federal pandemic loan program despite many unresolved issues, sparking an industry scramble to get lending platforms ready, five people familiar with the discussions said.
The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) reopens to large lenders on Tuesday, with many big banks including JPMorgan Chase & Co, Wells Fargo & Co and Bank of America, ready to start accepting applications, their representatives said.
But with dozens of changes to the rules and government technology system, the latest round is much more complex. Some industry executives worry that the government pressure to launch with so many unresolved issues could cause a rerun of the paperwork and technology snags that dogged last year’s launch.
