Paycheck Protection Program

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act was passed to provide emergency relief for small- to medium-sized businesses disrupted by COVID-19. The Act created the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) which allows financial institutions to provide federally-backed, forgivable loans to eligible businesses.

Please note that the SBA has been issuing new guidance and clarifications to financial institutions on a frequent basis, and this information is subject to change.
Program Overview:
  • The Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is a federal loan program that helps small and medium sized businesses impacted by COVID-19 to retain their workforce. The program provides businesses with funds to cover payroll costs, including benefits. Funds can also be used to pay interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.
  • The maximum loan size is up to 2.5 times the average monthly payroll costs over the prior 12 months. The maximum loan amount is $10 million.
  • The loan amounts may be forgiven. The amount of forgiveness is calculated as the sum of amounts paid in the eight weeks following loan origination for a) payroll, b) mortgage interest, c) rent and d) utilities.  
Who Can Apply?
Small businesses with 500 or fewer employees—including nonprofits, veterans organizations, tribal concerns, self-employed individuals, sole proprietorships, and independent contractors—are eligible. Businesses with more than 500 employees are eligible in certain industries. Find out if you qualify as a small business here.
When Can I Apply?
CSB is still accepting PPP loan applications from eligible businesses. The current deadline to apply is June 30, 2020. 
How Can I Apply for Loan Forgiveness?
The SBA recently released the loan forgiveness application. If you have a PPP loan with CSB, please contact your lender for additional details.
