Paycheck Protection Program

We’re proud of our commitment to helping during the COVID-19 pandemic and have been working closely with our small business lending customers to help them apply for funding through the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program.  Due to the overwhelming popularity of the program and the delays being experienced at the SBA, we have reached our lending limit.

However, our commitment doesn’t end there.  We're pleased to share with you that we’ve partnered with Kabbage*, a well-respected online small business lender, to continue accepting applications for the program through June 30, 2020.

The loan will be fully forgiven if the funds are used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (at least 75% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll).

Loan payments will also be deferred for six months. No collateral or personal guarantees are required. Neither the government nor lenders will charge small businesses any fees.

    Forgiveness is based on the employer maintaining or quickly rehiring employees and maintaining salary levels.  Forgiveness will be reduced if full-time headcount declines, or if salaries and wages decrease per program guidelines.

    This loan has a maturity of 2 years and an interest rate of 1.00%.
