SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP)

Updated 4/29/2020: FCW is still taking applications for the PPP loan program and we will do our very best to submit them to SBA for approval and eventual funding. We advise customers that due to high demand and volume of applications, coupled with performance issues of the SBA portal and limited program funding, not all submitted applications will be funded and there are limitations to the number of future applications that can even be processed.

Farm Credit West customers may now apply for SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP). This federal program, included as a part of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economics Security (CARES) Act, provides small business owners with a forgivable loan capped at $10 million to cover payroll, mortgage interest, rent, and utility costs.

Farm Credit West is now offering customers two methods by which to apply.

Apply for PPP through Farm Credit West: Intended for existing Farm Credit West customers, the below link will allow the user to walk through the SBA PPP application process. Applicants are eligible for up to $10 million in PPP funds and must meet Farm Credit eligibility requirements.
