The PPP was formed under the CARES Act and is administered by the Small Business Administration (SBA) to make loans to businesses impacted by COVID-19. This unique program includes a provision for the SBA to forgive up to the full amount of the loan, if used for eligible expenses.

Updated March 31, 2021

It has been very rewarding to connect more closely with our community nonprofits and small businesses to provide financial assistance through PPP during this particularly challenging period. Looking at both 2020 and 2021, we have channeled more than $100 million in relief to support the economic resiliency of local organizations. We thank all the organizations that partnered with Seattle Bank through this important program. Seattle Bank is continuing to support current clients with completed or in-process Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans, however we are stepping back from new lending.

PPP Loan Forgiveness

Updated March 5, 2021

The Economic Aid Act introduced several revisions to the Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), including a requirement that the Small Business Administration (SBA) issue streamlined application forms in order to simplify the forgiveness process. Previously reserved for Paycheck Protection Program borrowers with a loan equaling $50,000 or less, the 3508S application form can now be used for loans up to $150,000. Eligible borrowers will still need to calculate their requested forgiveness amount and verify that the money was used for payment of eligible expenses. All applicants should maintain a record of documentation; however, no payroll, expense, or FTE documentation is required for submission of the 3508S.

We hope this streamlined forgiveness application process will be efficient for you and your organization. Don't hesitate to reach out if our team can help you.
