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, our team stands ready to process your forgiveness application when the time is right for you. For PPP loans of less than $50,000, First PREMIER Bank has developed the following PPP Loan Forgiveness Checklist. If your PPP loan exceeds $50,000, please utilize the following PPP Loan Forgiveness Checklist.

Below you will find links to the most current programmatic information and application forms. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you, your business and your employees.
