SBA Disaster Loans for Ag Businesses
The Small Business Administration is now accepting applications from agricultural businesses for SBA’s Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) and EIDL Advance programs. Funding was authorized by Congress through the Paycheck Protection Program and Healthcare Enhancement Act. Applications are currently being accepted by the SBA on a limited basis.
SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)
A component of the federal stimulus package (The CARES Act) signed into law on March 27, the Small Business Administration will issue $349 billion in forgivable loans through the Paycheck Protection Program. These loans are designed to provide relief for small businesses struggling to keep their workers on the payroll.
SBA will forgive loans if all employees are kept on the payroll for eight weeks and the money is used for payroll, rent, mortgage interest, or utilities.
Branch Hours and Operation
As an essential business, Farm Credit West remains open and ready to meet your needs. Active banking hours of operation have been shortened to 10am through 3pm effective the week of March 30 and thereafter. Despite shortened office hours, our staff continues to be available by phone or e-mail 8am to 5pm.
To protect our staff, we have reduced presence in each of our offices and are extending a requirement for “social distancing” to our staff and customers. To support that practice, our doors will remain locked during business hours and customers will be buzzed in to conduct necessary business.
