Loan Forgiveness 

Your loan will be fully forgiven if the funds are used for payroll costs, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities (at least 75% of forgiveness must be for payroll costs), available eight weeks after the loan has been funded. Additional documentation will be required to substantiate the forgiveness amount. 

Application Process: 

Our commercial lenders are here to process your SBA PPP requests. Existing credit union members will need to complete the PPP Application Form and provide supporting information that you use to calculate your loan amount. Please email or contact your commercial lender directly for a DocuSign fillable application form.

In addition to providing the application and supporting documentation, non-members will be required to open a business share account and business checking account for the funds to be deposited at closing. All fees for the deposit accounts will be waived when done in conjunction with a PPP application. Please email to request the DocuSign fillable application form and membership opening documents.
