What other documents will I need to include with my application?
Do I need to first look for other funds before applying to this program?
No. We are waiving the usual SBA requirement that you try to obtain some or all of the loan funds from other sources (i.e., we are waiving the Credit Elsewhere requirement).
On May 15th, the SBA released initial guidance and requirements for those PPP loan customers who wish to request that some or all of their PPP loan be forgiven.
The loan forgiveness application form and step-by-step instructions on how to perform the calculations required by the CARES Act to confirm eligibility for loan forgiveness can be found on the SBA’s website.
The SBA still intends to publish additional rules and guidance on the program’s forgiveness provisions so we recommend you check their website often as it is the most current and official source for the latest PPP loan updates.
We will continue to provide you with updates as we are made aware of them.
As the number of COVID cases continues to rise in the Commonwealth, the safety and well-being of our employees and customers remain our top priority. With this in mind, we wanted to make you aware of the changes we will be making within our branch network.
