WAITLIST: PAYROLL PROTECTION PROGRAM (PPP)

Although initial federal funding for the Payroll Protection Program (PPP) was depleted April 9, 2020, Congress is discussing another round of funding. In anticipation of that possibility, BCT has created a "waitlist" for interested businesses. Should funding occur, businesses who provide COMPLETE and necessary documentation in advance will be processed first.

**NOTE: There are no guarantees Congress will pass more PPP funding. This "waitlist" process is not a commitment by BCT to provide PPP or other funding and is only a goodwill effort to expedite the application process should funding be provided by Congress.

What is the Payroll Protection Program (PPP)?
Congress provides funding for businesses and other organizations who have been impacted by some form of disaster. There are primarily two programs funded through the Small Business Administration (SBA). The are as follows:

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) is intended to protect businesses harmed by the COVID-19 pandemic, specifically to protect payroll expenses, salaries, mortgage interest, rent and utilities and interest on debt prior to February 15, 2020. Details for the PPP assistance are found in the chart below.
Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) program is intended for other harm to businesses that may include COVID-19 but is not limited to it. The EIDL has two options: disaster loan assistance and emergency grant assistance. Details can be found on our webpage SBA Business Assistance Programs.

COMPLETED requests first. INCOMPLETE requests may be delayed. Further information may be

requested after applications are submitted as we underwrite loans through the SBA. Additionally, BCT will process all PPP fundings through a BCT deposit account. If you currently do not have a deposit account with BCT, we can open an account for you. We have several options to fit your business. Work with your BCT team member to open a uitable account.
