Latest Update on the Paycheck Protection Program

 

IMPORTANT NOTICE: The following FAQs are based on the provisions of the CARES Act as implemented and interpreted by the U.S. Small Business Administration (“SBA”) and the U.S. Treasury Department (“U.S. Treasury”) through interim and final regulations, FAQs, and regulatory guidance and interpretations. The SBA and U.S. Treasury continue to issue new regulations, FAQs and guidance that in some cases changes or conflicts with prior guidance. The eligibility of a PPP loan for forgiveness and the amount and timing of any forgiveness will be subject to and dependent on approval pursuant to the regulations, FAQs and guidance in effect at the time a request for forgiveness is processed and as a result, we cannot provide you any assurances regarding forgiveness of your loan until such approval is received and any review or audit by the SBA completed. The information provided herein is not intended to constitute legal advice. 

 

Small Business Administration (SBA) Releases PPP Loan Information - July 7, 2020 

On July 6, the SBA chose to release PPP loan information at the request of Congress, the media and others given the significant taxpayer commitment to the program. This was not a decision made by FirstBank & Trust or any other bank that participated in the government program.

Not all details about individual PPP loans are being released by the SBA.

  • Names of borrowers with a PPP loan under $150,000 will not be identified at this time. For loans under $150,000, only the city, state, zip code, the number of employees benefited, and the congressional district will be identified, along with the name of the lender that made the loan.
  • For PPP loans over $150,000, the SBA released the name of the business along with the information above. The SBA released a dollar range for these loans, not the exact amounts.

PPP Loan Forgiveness
As of July 6, the SBA has not begun to accept applications for forgiveness. FirstBank & Trust has not received any information from the SBA on when they will begin to accept applications for forgiveness. We will closely monitor SBA announcements and communicate updates in a timely fashion. Customers should not fill out or submit SBA PPP forgiveness applications to FirstBank & Trust. We will be providing customers an online tool and calculator to assist in completion of the PPP forgiveness application.

Extension of the PPP Loan Program through August 8, 2020
On July 4, President Trump signed the PPP Extension Bill to allow small businesses to apply for the loans through August 8. The program was expected to end on June 30; however, it is reported that approximately $130 billion of the $670 billion remained in the program.

FirstBank & Trust will continue to support you and our other business customers as we do our part to help fuel the economic recovery in our community. We are here to help and answer any questions you may have about PPP or our other small business programs.

 

Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act Guidance Published - June 10, 2020 

On June 10, 2020, the SBA and US Treasury publish guidance for Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act. Read the Interim Final Rule.

 

Paycheck Protection Program Loan Forgiveness Application - May 15, 2020 

On May 15, 2020 the SBA published a PPP Loan Forgiveness Application and instructions.

PLEASE DO NOT COMPLETE AND SUBMIT THIS APPLICATION AT THIS TIME.

FirstBank & Trust is providing this as a further guide regarding forgiveness during the period between now and when you may apply for forgiveness

FirstBank & Trust will provide an online application and calculator tool for submitting and processing forgiveness applications.
