PPP Loan Communication Historical Updates

March 30, 2021 Extension of Program Update

On Tuesday, March 30, 2021, the President signed the PPP Extension Act of 2021, extending the deadline to apply for PPP Loans from March 31, 2021 to May 31, 2021.  The program could end earlier if allocated funds are depleted.

February 22, 2021 Update

On Monday, February 22, 2021, President Biden announced changes to the SBA’s coronavirus relief program to ensure equity.  In order to reach the smallest businesses and nonprofits, the SBA will offer PPP loans to businesses and nonprofits with 20 or less employees and sole proprietors only from Wednesday, February 24, 2021 through Wednesday, March 10, 2021.  This will ensure lenders and community partners have ample time to work with small businesses and nonprofits while also ensuring that larger PPP-eligible business will still have plenty of time to apply for and receive support before the program is set to expire.

The SBA also announced four additional changes to open the PPP to more underserved small businesses than ever before.  Click here to read about these changes and for more information.

Paycheck Protection Program - January 7, 2021

Paycheck Protection Program

The U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) and U.S. Treasury issued guidance on January 7, 2021 for the reconstituted Paycheck Protection Program.  Providence Bank & Trust is participating in the 2nd round of the SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) to assist our non-profit & small business community in accessing this vital capital source during these continued uncertain times.

The SBA will begin accepting Second Draw PPP Loans on January 13, 2021.  The SBA will initially only accept Loan Applications for First Draw and Second Draw PPP Loans from Community Financial Institutions.  Community Financial Institutions (CFIs) include Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFIs), Minority Depository Institutions (MDIs), Certified Development Companies (CDCs), and Microloan Intermediaries.  This will better assist with the SBA’s guidance on providing access to capital for Minority, Underserved, Veteran and Women-Owned Businesses.

The SBA and U.S. Treasury have announced that all other participating financial institutions, including Providence Bank & Trust, may begin submitting second round PPP loans on Tuesday, January 19, 2021.  The Paycheck Protection Program is anticipated to remain open through March 31, 2021.
