Paycheck Protection Program
Small Business Administration - PPP
Update on your PPP Loan:
Please find the following excerpt from the American Bankers Association. As you’ll see from these that the SBA has yet to finalize its procedures and its portal will not be open until sometime in August.
“Also testifying before the committee, SBA Administrator Jovita Carranza said that SBA hopes to have a forgiveness portal—through which banks can apply for forgiveness on behalf of their clients—up and running by August. “We are trying to make it right the first time,” she said.”
This is assuming future changes are not made. It is expected that more will come related to the process and documentation requirements.
Due to this we will not open our portal until it is clear what our procedures are to be and what information is required from you.
We will continue to provide updates to you as information becomes available. As also, feel free to contact us at PPPTrack@westsuburbanbank.com with and questions.
