Business Loans

Access to financial support, guidance, and planning services are available to small business owners through the Small Business Administration (SBA) and the CARES Act with the help of your local credit union. The CARES Act includes resources such as the Paycheck Protection Program, Loan Forgiveness and Emergency Economic Injury Disaster Loan Grants to support small businesses (with fewer than 500 employees) through the current COVID-19 period of uncertainty.

As the SBA navigates an unprecedented economic disruption due to the Coronavirus outbreak, information is consistently being updated.

The Paycheck Protection Program would provide cash-flow assistance through 100% federally funded guaranteed loans to employers who maintain their payroll during this COVID-19 emergency.

  • This program is for any small business with less than 500 employees (including sole proprietorships, independent contractors and self-employed persons), private non-profit organizations or 501(c)(19) veterans organizations affected by coronavirus/COVID-19.
  • If all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities, the loans would be forgiven.
  • Benefits include the following: forgiveness of up to eight weeks of payroll based on employee retention and salary levels, no SBA fees and at least six months of deferral with maximum deferrals of up to a year.
  • Small businesses and other eligible entities are able to apply if they were harmed by the COVID-19 emergency between February 15, 2020 and June 20, 2020.
  • Loans are available through June 30, 2020. Lenders may begin processing loan applications as soon as April 3, 2020.
  • To learn more or apply, contact Ashley Chambers at [email protected].
