Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

Due to the overwhelming response, we are no longer accepting ppp applications. we apologize for the inconvenience.

Forgiveness Information and Application

Funds are provided in the form of loans that can be fully forgiven when employee and compensation levels are maintained and when loan proceeds are used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (due to likely high subscription, at least 60% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll).


The U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) provides small businesses, self-employed individuals and independent contractors who have been adversely impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, funds to pay up to eight weeks of payroll costs — including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay interest on mortgages, rent and utilities, with some limitations. As an SBA-preferred lender, we are well-positioned to help you efficiently navigate the loan application process.

What are the loan terms?

  • 1.00% fixed rate
  • 2-year term; no prepayment penalties or fees
  • No collateral or personal guarantee required

For small businesses with existing SBA 7(a) and 504 loans (CDC portion only-not bank 1st mtg.):

  • The SBA will make the next 6 months payments on loans in place prior to the enactment of the CARES ACT (March 27th) that are in regular servicing status.

  • After the subsidy period mentioned above, a borrower may be eligible for up to six months of additional relief in the form of payment reductions and/or deferments if your loan is in regular servicing status. (generally meaning current)
  • This is not automatic and requires lender review and approval. Borrower will need to make a written request and provide additional documentation.
