5/29 Update: We are now accepting PPP loan applications for existing customers while funding remains available. All other applications will be reviewed on a case-by-case basis.
What is the SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)? The Paycheck Protection Program prioritizes millions of Americans employed by small businesses by authorizing up to $349 billion toward job retention and certain other expenses.
Small businesses and eligible nonprofit organizations, Veterans organizations, and Tribal businesses described in the Small Business Act, as well as individuals who are self-employed or are independent contractors, are eligible if they also meet program size standards.
Under this program:
● Eligible recipients may qualify for a loan up to $10 million determined by 8 weeks of prior average payroll plus an additional 25% of that amount.
● Loan payments will be deferred for six months.
● If you maintain your workforce, SBA will forgive the portion of the loan proceeds that are used to cover the first 8 weeks of payroll and certain other expenses following loan origination.

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. If there are services you rarely use, it is a good practice to regularly test these functions so you are prepared to use if needed.
