Ready to apply for a Paycheck Protection Loan? Here's a list of SBA lenders

Updated: Apr 11, 2020

As part of the CARES Act, the Paycheck Protection Program authorizes forgivable loans from SBA lenders to small businesses to keep their employees on the payroll and to help pay for other costs associated with keeping the business operating, such as the cost of utilities, during the COVID-19 crisis. Currently, only small businesses and sole proprietorships can apply for this program. The other good news is that Congress also included independent contractors and self-employed individuals, who may also begin applying starting Friday, April 10.

You must apply through an existing SBA lender or through any federally insured depository institution, credit union, or Farm Credit System institution that is participating.

Things are moving fast as businesses take advantage of this new program. The list below is therefore a snapshot of financial institutions who are offering SBA products as of Tuesday, April 7, 2020. Your Chamber Team has reached-out to each one of the listed financial institutions, and some currently provide all SBA loan products, some require you be to a current client in order for them to provide assistance, others are providing only certain SBA product processing, and still others have halted processing due to the incredibly high demand. Given that the landscape is changing rapidly, please contact your financial institution directly for their conditions and requirements.
