Paycheck Protection Program
The CARES (the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security) Act recently passed into law includes a provision known as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), which initially set aside $350 billion in financial relief to help small businesses.
The program, managed by the Small Business Administration (SBA), provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to small businesses with 500 or fewer employees to assist with payroll, healthcare costs, rent, utilities and mortgage interest.
Initial SBA funding for the program reached its cap on April 16, 2020. No lender can currently submit new PPP loans for SBA approval at this time. However, Congress is expected to make more funds available.
We will continue to take applications for business members in anticipation of more funds being approved by Congress and the SBA opening another round of PPP loans to new applicants.
We stand ready to work with you and to be prepared to submit your application in the event that more funding is allocated for the PPP program.
You must be a member of the credit union with an established business account to apply for a PPP loan through AmFirst. New members may apply to open a business account and then for a PPP loan once the new member’s business account has been established and more PPP funds are made available by Congress and the SBA.
Please call your local branch to open a new business account.
The process can be completed remotely for existing AmFirst members. New members may sign the required documents by using the drive-thru or making a branch appointment.
You can learn more about the Paycheck Protection Program at the United States Treasury website HERE.
