Update January 11, 2021

A comprehensive, nearly 5,600-page bill called the “Economic Aid Act” was recently signed into law and includes provisions related to the Paycheck Protection Program, including setting aside $284 billion for both new borrowers and for those borrowers meeting the criteria for a “second draw”.

As many of you have experienced in the past, these programs are fluid with new information coming out every week, and sometimes every day, from the SBA and US Department of Treasury. We assure you our team is working quickly and efficiently to determine the impact of the new law on existing PPP customers, new PPP customers, and customers who are eligible for a “second draw”.

If you did not receive a PPP loan in 2020, please click on the link for information on PPP First Draw Loans. If you did receive a PPP loan in 2020 and are interested in a second one, please click on the link for information on PPP Second Draw Loans.

SENB Bank will be accepting applications for PPP Second Draw loan customers and new PPP loan customers as soon as the details of the new program are finalized. As information continues to be provided to us by the Small Business Administration and Treasury, we will update our website and send out additional emails with information on how and when to apply for this round of PPP funds.

SENB Bank has provided hundreds of PPP loans since the inception of the program and we look forward to continuing to help.  Please reach out to your SENB Business Banker if you have questions.


Update: December 22, 2020

The U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S Senate have passed the Covid-19 Relief Package – the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2021, and it is expected to be signed into law by President Trump.   The Economic Aid to Hard-Hit Small Businesses, Nonprofits, and Venues Act sets aside $284 billion for the Paycheck Protection Program, both for new borrowers and for those meeting the criteria for a “second draw”.

Some expectations of the new bill include the following – for a second PPP loan, a small business cannot have more than 300 employees and must demonstrate at least a 25 percent reduction in gross revenues between comparable quarters in 2019 and 2020.  Maximum loan size is expected to be 2.5x average monthly payroll costs, up to $2 million, while small businesses assigned to industry NAICS code 72 (Accommodations and Food Services) can receive second PPP loans equal to 3.5x average monthly payroll costs.  Eligible borrowers can receive full loan forgiveness if they spend at least 60 percent of their second PPP loan on payroll costs.  

As information is provided to us by the Small Business Administration and Treasury, we will update our website and send out an email with information for eligible borrowers on how to apply for this round of PPP funds.

SENB Bank has provided hundreds of PPP loans since the inception of the program and we are looking forward to continuing to help.   Please reach out to your SENB Business Banker who assisted you with your first PPP loan, if you have questions.     

Sincerely,
