Note to Previous PPP Loan Recipients - All loans from your previously received Valley Strong PPP loan will populate in the new application portal. You do not need to know your previous loan number.
For first-draw loan applicants, additional payroll cost support documents in pdf format will also be required as follows:
The SBA ruling explains that generally, the same documentation as required for First Draw PPP loans is required to substantiate a Second Draw applicant's payroll cost calculations. However, if the applicant uses the same lender and uses calendar year 2019 figures to determine both its First-Draw and Second-Draw PPP loans, then no additional documentation is required. However, the Valley Strong may independently request additional documentation if we conclude that the documentation would be useful in conducting the good-faith review of the borrower's loan amount calculation. For loans with a principal amount of $150,000 or more, the applicant must also submit documentation adequate to establish that the applicant experienced a revenue reduction of 25% or more in 2020 relative to 2019. For loans with a principal amount of $150,000 or less, documentation is not required at the time of application and can be provided with the forgiveness application.
Supporting documents will be as follows:
Revenue reduction supporting documentation may include:
Support of the following:
For independent contractors and self-employed individuals:

2019 or 2020 Schedule C Form 1040
