The information provided is intended for informational use only and is subject to change.

New federal stimulus legislation was approved, and it includes continuing the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) and providing additional assistance to small businesses affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

We are pleased to announce that the SBA Portal is now open and we are actively taking PPP loan First Draw, Second Draw, and Forgiveness applications.
