As part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act, the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), available through the Small Business Administration (SBA), provides 100% federally guaranteed loans to eligible small businesses. Significant changes have been made to the existing Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), and gives an opportunity for certain businesses to seek a second PPP loan called a “Second Draw Loan” if they meet certain requirements.

While we navigate through these difficult times, we’re here to help support your business.

As a certified SBA Lender, North Brookfield Savings Bank is dedicated to guiding customers through the PPP application process.

The Small Business Administration (SBA) Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) provides small businesses with funds to pay up to 8 weeks of payroll costs, including benefits, allowing you to keep your workforce employed during COVID-19. Funds can also be used to pay interest on mortgages, rent and utilities. Borrower fees are waived for SBA PPP Loans and will be available to all businesses that qualify.


Update March 17, 2021:  The Small Business Administration is now accepting second-draw PPP loan applications from borrowers who previously submitted first-draw loan application in calendar year 2021. To be eligible for a second-draw loan, the borrower must have received a first-draw PPP loan and have used, or will use, the full amount of the first-draw PPP loan on or before the expected date on which the second-draw PPP loan is disbursed to the borrower. The SBA also added two additional organizational types – single member LLCs and qualified joint-venture (spouses) – that can be used by borrowers when using the Schedule C gross income PPP calculation.


Update March 2, 2021: The Biden-Harris Administration has announced measures to ensure that small businesses have access to PPP loans. Under this announcement the SBA will be implementing the following:

  • Providing a 14-day window starting Feb. 24th, during which only businesses with fewer than 20 employees are eligible to apply.
  • Setting aside $1 Billion in PPP Loans for sole proprietors, independent contractors and self-employed individuals in low-to-moderate-income areas
  • Eliminating a rule restricting businesses that are owned (at minimum 20% ownership) by an individual who is delinquent on student debt from receiving PPP loans.
  • Clarifying that non-citizens may apply using individual taxpayer identification numbers.

Application Process Timing:

North Brookfield Savings Bank’s ability to process PPP loan requests will be impacted by volume of requests and by the SBA’s ability to accept and process applications. Current customer requests will be processed first and then we anticipate being able to process all others. Proper completion of the application and submission of all required documentation will also impact the Bank’s ability to submit the application to the SBA.
