Paycheck Protection Program

Time is money. For small businesses affected by COVID-19, now is the time to apply for federal Paycheck Protection Program loans. The Indy Chamber’s Rapid Response Loan Fund, administered by Business Ownership Initiative in partnership with Bankable, is offering loans up to $75,000 to small businesses in Marion County. Approved loans are guaranteed by the U.S. Small Business Administration and are forgivable when employees are retained for at least eight weeks and when used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.

These federal assistance dollars are in high demand, and funds are limited. If federal funding runs out, the Indy Chamber will save completed applications for future funding opportunities. Act now


Eligible businesses for PPP through the Indy Chamber include those:

  • seeking no more than a $75,000 loan

  • are a registered business in Marion County

  • are a for-profit business

  • with 500 employees or fewer

If you have already applied for PPP through another lender, you can apply through us if you have received written confirmation from your lender that your application was not submitted to the SBA and that you can apply through other lenders.
