Paycheck Protection Program

Because of our deep client relationships with some of the nation’s top existing SBA lenders, we are uniquely positioned to help businesses access PPP loan funds from the lenders best able to deliver them. This is why we have largely set aside our normal business of recruiting to do our part during this unprecedented time of economic uncertainty.

We're Here To Help

How can BLCO help me get PPP funds?

BLCO is not a PPP lender. We cannot fund your loan. Where our services provide value to a small business seeking PPP funds is in knowing who can. We are working tirelessly to procure a robust list of lenders who have the capacity and the commitment to fund PPP loans to qualifying businesses anywhere in the country.

If you have read much about the program’s launch, you know that most large banks and many local banks are only accepting PPP applications from their own clients, and in many cases are denying borrowers who do not have existing loans with those institutions. Finding out who can fund your loan has been a monumental challenge for most small businesses. We are here to guide you safely through that minefield.

Most lenders are working through the kinks, figuring out how to effectively deliver this loan program, and moving cautiously forward. Many community banks who would like to deliver these funds are not even approved yet by the SBA to do so. How do you know who to trust with your application? Any lender we introduce you to will be 100% capable of doing your PPP loan and have the commitment to deliver.
