Paycheck Protection Program Update1

On December 27, 2020, the President signed into law the Consolidated Appropriations Act (the “Act”), a $900 billion legislative package that, among other things, renews the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) that was established under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). The Act allocates $284.45 billion for PPP loans to eligible new borrowers, as well as a second-draw to qualifying borrowers that already received a loan under the first round of PPP funding.

FNB is currently accepting applications for PPP forgiveness. Keep in mind that all loan applications must be submitted through the Portal. Paper-based applications will not be accepted.

Important Update on First and Second Draw Loan Applications

The Small Business Administration has announced that the Paycheck Protection Program funding, previously scheduled to be available through May 31, has now been exhausted. As a result, we are not able to accept new first or second draw PPP loan applications. If you submitted a first or second draw loan application on or before May 4, but you have not yet received your SBA loan number, you will be notified of the status of your application.

PPP Loan Forgiveness Applications

FNB's Online PPP Loan Portal is Open for Forgiveness Applications for borrowers who have not yet submitted a forgiveness application for their Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loan. Our PPP Loan Portal was temporarily closed while the SBA finalized changes to the SBA forgiveness process as a result of the December 27, 2020, Consolidated Appropriations Act. Highlights of those changes are outlined below.

  • Covered Period Flexibility: The covered period for PPP loan forgiveness can be any length between eight and 24 weeks to best meet your business needs.
  • Expanded Use of PPP Loan Proceeds: Forgivable nonpayroll costs now include additional expenses such as operations expenditures, property damage costs, supplier costs and worker protection expenditures. However, payroll costs still must represent at least 60 percent of the total expenses for which forgiveness is sought.
  • Simplified Forgiveness: The short form, PPP Loan Forgiveness Application Form 3508S, can be used by borrowers that received a PPP loan of $150,000 or less (previously the amount was $50,000).
  • Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) Advance No Longer Impacts Forgiveness: If you received an EIDL Advance, your forgiveness amount will no longer be reduced by the amount of the Advance.

For more details about your forgiveness eligibility, please visit the SBA website or work with your attorney or accountant.

Please note that, due to the changes to the forgiveness application forms and process required by the SBA, if you started — but did not submit — your forgiveness application prior to January 27, 2021, you will be required to complete a new application using the PPP Loan Portal.

You do not need to apply for loan forgiveness on your First Draw PPP loan in order to be eligible for a Second Draw PPP loan; however, you must certify that you used the full amount of your First Draw PPP loan on eligible expenses. As a reminder, you have until 10 months after the end of your 8-week or 24-week Covered Period to apply for forgiveness before loan payments commence.

Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) Scam Awareness

Although PPP loans are funded by the SBA through the CARES Act, the loans are provided through First National Bank.  Borrowers will work directly with FNB regarding forgiveness applications.  The SBA will not contact you directly to sign or submit documents. All SBA requests for information will come through FNB.

  • A new scam targeting PPP loan recipients appears to be an email from the Small Business Administration using the SBA logo. The email asks the recipient to download, sign and return documents.
  • The SBA will not contact you directly regarding your PPP loan.
  • Legitimate government entities will have websites and emails that end in .gov, such as www.sba.govRedirect icon.
  • Review other tips from the SBARedirect icon to avoid scams. Contact the SBA office to report a scam appearing to be from the SBA.
  • FNB is not working with any third parties on the Paycheck Protection Program. Any telephone or email solicitations that you receive from vendors offering assistance or requesting information are not approved by or affiliated with FNB.
  • If you are unsure about a communication you have received, please contact the banker you are working with or call 1-833-362-5626
