UPDATE: Paycheck Protection Program

The Small Business Administration and Treasury Department have released new information and guidance on the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).

The PPP will provide small businesses, private nonprofits, veteran organizations, self-employed individuals, independent contractors, and more with the funds necessary to sustain their operations and keep their workers employed.

Assistance will come in the form of loans that can be forgiven; forgiveness will be based on the borrower using the funds appropriately and maintaining or quickly rehiring employees while  also maintaining wage/salary levels.

These loans can be accessed through SBA approved lenders. It is our understanding that the following member banks and credit unions are SBA participating lenders:

The Treasury Department has announced that small businesses and sole proprietorships can begin applying on April 3rd and that independent contractors and self-employed individuals can begin applying on April 10th. We do, however, encourage you to first contact your financial institution to determine how and when they will begin accepting applications.
