Coronavirus (COVID-19) Information for Small Business Lenders

The Small Business Administration (SBA) has completed the latest phase of the Paycheck Protection Program based on available funding.

The Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act established several new programs administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA). These programs were designed to provide relief to small businesses during the course of this national emergency so small businesses could sustain their operations and keep their workers employed.

The FDIC worked with the SBA to help ensure that FDIC-supervised banks have the information they need to become SBA-certified lenders and make loans to small businesses through the SBA’s Paycheck Protection Program (PPP).
