Paycheck Protection Program
  • The Paycheck Protection Program provides funds to pay up to 8 weeks of payroll costs including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.

  • Loans will be fully forgiven when used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (due to likely high subscription, at least 75% of the forgiven amount must have been used for payroll). 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.

  • Loan payments will be deferred for 6 months. There is a 0.50% fixed interest rate.

  • Nonprofits can apply starting April 3rd. Application can be made at any FDIC-insured banking institution. It is recommended that you make application with your primary bank.

  • You will need to provide your lender with payroll documentation in addition to other information. Please contact your lender about their required documentation.

  • The program will be open until June 30, 2020, but it is recommended that you apply as soon as possible as there is a cap on how much funding is available.
