SBA 7(a) Loans:
Great news! The SBA is forgiving up to the first 6 months of principal and interest payments, capped at $9M per month, on new SBA loans approved between 2/1/21 and 9/30/21. The SBA guaranty fee has been waived for all loans approved before 9/30/21 resulting in a significant savings in closing costs. Further, borrowers who have already received 6 months of SBA loan payments in 2020 will receive an additional 3 months of payments beginning with their February payment, capped at $9M per month. After the 3-month period, certain hard-hit industries will get an additional 5 months (also capped). Please email SBA_PPP@unitybank.com.
Continuing CARES Act Payments:
Borrowers who have received previous CARES Act P&I payments will receive an additional 3 months of payments beginning with their February payment, capped at $9M per month. After the 3-month period, certain hard-hit industries will get an additional 5 months (also capped). New SBA loans approved between 2/1/21 and 9/30/21 will get their first 6 months payments made by the SBA, capped at $9M per month. SBA guaranty fee has been waived for all loans approved before 9/30/21. This will result in significant savings in loan closing costs.
SBA PPP Loan Deferrals
With the passing of the SBA PPP Flexibility Act on June 5, 2020, the covered period for all PPP loans was extended from 8 weeks to 24 weeks from the date the loan was funded. Additionally, the period for which loan payments would be deferred was extended to 10 months from the end of the covered period (or to the date SBA renders a decision on forgiveness, whichever comes first).

The agency will never contact people asking for personal details, such as bank account information, credit and debit card numbers, Social Security numbers, or passwords.
Consumers may also be contacted by persons who claim to be employed by an agency, bank, or another entity. These scams may involve a variety of communication channels, including emails, phone calls, letters, text messages, faxes, and social media. Scammers might also ask for personal information such as bank account numbers, Social Security numbers, dates of birth, and other details that can be used to commit fraud or sell a person's identity. Consumers should not provide this information.
