Paycheck Protection Program

On March 27, 2020, The Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act) was signed into law as a relief measure for small businesses and their employees who have been adversely impacted by the current public health crisis. A key provision of this legislation is the Paycheck Protection Program, a $350 billion emergency lending program designed to provide small businesses with loans to help cover their operating expenses and maintain their workforce during a temporary period of severe market disruption.

Helpful Information

Use these forms to better understand the Paycheck Protection Program and to understand the application requirements.

Any business in operation on February 15, 2020 with no more than 500 employees (or one that meets the SBA’s size standard) may be eligible, including:

  • Small businesses
  • 501(c)(3) nonprofit organizations
  • Sole proprietorships,
  • Independent contractors
  • Self-employed individuals
  • Tribal businesses
  • 501(c)(19) Veterans Organizations
  • A loan up to 2.5X your business’s average monthly payroll up to $10 million
  • Fixed rate of 4% APR
  • No payments for the first 6-12 months, then a 10-year term loan
  • Up to 100% of the loan can potentially be forgiven with approval
  • Payroll expenses
  • Employee salaries
  • Mortgage interest
  • Rent and Utilities
  • Compensation in excess of an annual salary of $100,000 as prorated for the covered period
  • Compensation for employees not residing in the U.S.
  • Qualified family leave wages for which a credit is allowed under the Families First Coronavirus Response Act
  • We are now accepting applications, however the applications will not be fully processed and funded until the SBA releases more information to lenders on the full loan process.
  • Applications will remain active and ready to be processed once the SBA releases further information.
  • Contact us at 800.442.2800 to begin the application process.

A major benefit that comes with this program is the ability to have a portion or all of your Paycheck Protection loan forgiven and turned into a grant. The forgiveness program is designed to support employment and comes with requirements on maintaining a specific level of employees and compensation during the allotted time period. Rest assured that we will share details of the forgiveness program once more information is provided by the SBA.

Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL)

The Economic Injury Disaster Loan is currently being offered through the U.S Small Business Administration. If your insurance, and funding from the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA), doesn’t fully cover the disaster assistance you need, you can use disaster loans for a number of purposes.

An Economic Injury Disaster Loan is a low-interest disaster loan provided by the Small Business Association (SBA) to help businesses and homeowners recover from declared disasters.

According to the SBA, “The Economic Injury Disaster Loan Program (EIDL) provides small businesses with working capital loans of up to $2 million that can provide vital economic support to small businesses to help overcome the temporary loss of revenue they are experiencing.” The process to apply for disaster assistance is simple. To qualify, your business or home must be in an affected area.

1. Check disaster declarations

See if the SBA has issued a disaster declaration in your area at disasterloan.sba.gov.

2. Apply for a disaster loan

Loans are available for businesses and homes affected by disaster.

3. Check your status

Log in to your account and check your email for updates.

We are available to assist you with any questions you may have about the EIDL Program, and can also help you with your online submission.

  • The SBA has indicated that incomplete applications will be delayed
  • Contact us at 800.442.2800 and mention that you are calling about the EIDL Program and you will be directed to a member of our team

Regardless of the challenges facing small business owners today, you continue to have our unwavering support. Our commitment to partner with you on the growth and sustainability of your business remains strong.
