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).
EIDL Program – 9/4 Update: All available funds for the EIDL Advance program have been allocated.

ALERT - POTENTIAL PANDEMIC SCAMS
During these unprecedented times consumers may receive false information regarding the security of their deposits or their ability to access cash. The FDIC does not send unsolicited correspondence asking for money or sensitive personal information. 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.
It’s a good idea for you to be prepared to manage finances in the event you cannot conduct business in the place or manner you usually do. Whether the Bank’s digital products are your first preference or a back-up, please make sure that you are familiar with the bank's electronic products, how to enroll and how they work.
If for any reason you cannot conduct business in your usual place of business, you should ensure you have access to your passwords and other information you need to conduct transactions.
