Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Loans

Earlier this year, Congress appropriated nearly $660 billion through the CARES Act to assist small businesses, eligible organizations, and self-employed individuals amid the COVID-19 pandemic and economic downturn. Congress utilized financial institutions to distribute aid in the form of a forgivable loan program, referred to as the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). Since its initial passage, the program has experienced several enhancements and modifications. For example, Congress passed the Paycheck Protection Program Flexibility Act in early June, which should result in a greater portion of PPP borrowers receiving full loan forgiveness. 

If you are a PPP loan recipient, First PREMIER Bank encourages you to exercise patience and wait to complete your PPP loan forgiveness application. Based on the likelihood of further legislative changes to the program, we expect greater clarity in the coming weeks and will communicate forgiveness application instructions at that time. In the interim, we remain committed to keeping you informed and will update this page as new information becomes available. Below you will find links to the most current programmatic information and application forms.
