COVID-19: Latest news regarding account assistance and other updates.

Payment Protection Program

We Are Here For You

On Friday, March 27th, 2020, Congress approved the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act (CARES Act), which is designated to provide comprehensive relief to individuals and businesses following the unprecedented impact of COVID-19 on our communities. The CARES Act created a new program within the U.S. Small Business Administration’s (SBA’s) flagship 7(a) Loan Program called the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). The goal behind this program is to allow businesses to meet ongoing vital expenses, such as payroll, utilities, rent, and mortgage interest.
