Update 1/15/21: We are now submitting applications for First and Second Draw Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans to the Small Business Administration (SBA).If you believe your business meets the eligibility requirements for a First or Second Draw PPP Loan, we encourage you to review the guidance provided directly from the SBA below and send us your application. Please contact one of our commercial lenders with any questions at this time.
Update 2/24/21: Starting today through Wednesday March 10, 2021 the SBA will accept PPP loan applications exclusively for small businesses with 20 or less. This measure was put in place by the SBA to give lenders and community partners more time to work with the smallest businesses submit their applications, while also ensuring that larger PPP-eligible businesses will still have plenty of time to apply for and receive support before the program expires on March 31, 2021. During this 14-day window, the SBA will reject any new applications from borrowers that have 20 or more employees. We still encourage eligible businesses with 20 or more employees to continue preparing your PPP application and required documents so we can promptly submit it to the SBA after the exclusivity period.
